「一園六季」 | GARDENS AS MAPS OF CULTURE

自古以來,人類一直創造人造環境,不論是通過經濟開發,還是對花園設計的講究而創造。通過各種文化和元素來探索物件製作的歷史和技術,包括地圖製作、藥物治療以及以花園作為文化文物 Para Site 藝術空間的大型群展「一園六季」呈現出不一樣的文化製品。「一園六季」於2020 年 5 月 16 日(星期六)至 8 月 30 日(星期日)開展,將分別於兩大場地: 橫跨兩層 Para Site 藝術空間及香港 Soho House 展出,並為年底舉行的 2020 年加德滿都三年 展的前奏。

It is not an overstatement to claim artificial environments as cultural artifacts as the history of human creations begun along with the building of a manmade environment. This is apparent in both the process of economically exploiting nature and the sophisticated manipulation of garden design. Para Site presents a large-scale group exhibition, “Garden of Six Seasons”, that gathers works of global artists to explore the history of human creations, including map-making, medicinal studies and garden designs as cultural artifacts. “Garden of Six Seasons” opens from 16 May (Saturday) to 30 August (Sunday) and will act as a precursor to the Kathmandu Triennale 2020.
