The exhibition GARDENING OF SOUL: INTRODUCTION is the first public output of the long-term project of the Faculty of Art and Design of Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, which focuses on the issue of artistic reflection on the phenomenon of garden and gardening understood in a broader social, economic, environmental and cultural context. This project, called GARDENING OF SOUL: IN FIVE CHAPTERS, is gradually being built in collaboration with several local and international partners and its basic idea is to strengthen collaboration between artists, art institutions and local communities in the form of jointly realized artworks using various means of artistic research, participatory work and site-specific interventions.
The exhibition is a part of project GARDENING OF SOUL: IN FIVE CHAPTERS, which is supported by the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.
