A Garden referring to the world after the apocalypse as a joint work of four artists. Visually designed and functionally conceived by Matyáš Chochola, winner of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award (2016), and garden architects Mirka Svorová and Jakub Finger (Partero Studio). In the garden, the Netherlandish artist Rustan Söderling presents his artist’s video with reference to the demise of today’s civilization.

The combination of two alternative ideas about the future of the world without people. Fascination with the visual power of what has remained of the iconic places of great civilizations on the one hand, and faith in the renewable power of nature on the other.

The artists’ garden is an attempt to approach the apocalyptical future positively, and to provide what we have destroyed with enough time for revitalization. The foundations are laid, but the work on the garden of the future never ends…
