Social Utopia - Land Art in Urban Space - the Blue Flower
"In my mind's eye, I can already see all the" blue flowers "and all the bruises of earth that shine in many places at the same time - a fleeting breath of" Garden of Eden."
For years, the artist and cultural pedagogue Veronika Moos has been bringing form concepts and minimalist interventions into nature at the “fringe of the sea". Sand, feathers, waves, foam - fragile, fleeting things that are exposed to sea breeze and tides and soon disappear – flotsam, and other things - are exposed to the wind and tides and soon disappear again – she stages poetically for the place and the moment.
In 2014 she launched the project “Of the Blue Flower". It is a combination of land, dialogue, fibre extraction and an artistic search for clues. Fascinated by the beauty and multilavered facets of the cultivated flax plant, the artist has had flax planted on numerous pieces of soil all over Europe. Historical, exploratory, social and artistic aspects of the linen fibre merge in this project and focus on the potential of cultural plant for shaping community and landscape in the centre. Meanwhile, the artist is in possession of “organic archives” from all over Europe.
Her artistic world of ideas remains imbued with creating spaces in which people and nature live together peacefully and respectfully, shaping the world.
