A garden is a borderland between order characterising the conquered space and chaos beyond man’s control. It is simultaneously a symbol of nature’s perfection and our absolute power over the non-human. The diptych represents a garden “abandoned” several decades ago, which plants, having escaped control, cover with their characteristic rhizomatic expansive structure. The work was inspired by the rhizome metaphor introduced by french philosophers Deleuze and Guattari. It is a fundamental metaphor of centreless thinking, whereby human thinking is a part of the world’s proliferating functioning.
