In this installation, as with much of his work, Javier Riera focuses on the peculiar relationship between geometry and nature. At the same time, the Garden in Development project examines other relationships as well, namely those created and destroyed between the viewer and the surrounding environment. Locations previously known in a completely different form are thereby transformed before the eyes of festival attendees and random passersby, all with the aid of light.
Riera considers geometry a natural part of the landscape, which shapes it and permeates it completely – thereby making it his ideal creative instrument. Approach his installation, allow yourself to be surrounded, and give yourself over to contemplation.
