The botanic garden of the Universidad de Valencia.
"Matter Trail. Studies for two interventions", an exhibition by Joaquín Jara and Rosa Rodríguez, included in the Sensitive Cartographies project, curated by Eugenia García Sottile, in collaboration wiyh L´animal a L´esquena and supported by Centro Cultural Octubre.
The works are presented as studies in preparation for two interventions planned for the Botanical Garden. They recover the materials and gestures trough which a garden lives. Each piece takes shape using the elements which are generated from the succession of natural cicles, and the actions of the people who take care and nourish the garden.
During the creative process of the interventions, we focus our attention on the point where space and moverment meet, ¿What is the quality of the gesture that shapes a space?
If the garden is born from observation, attention to detail, realtionships with each inhabitant, nurturing patience... ¿What is our role as visitors? ¿What should be the quality of our presence?
