Parco d’ombra – Park of the Shadow
Is a Landart installation in which the shadow of the soon to be dismantled Notgalerie (a former church) is traced into the surrounding lawn with fertilizer.
To this end, the shadow cast by the structure was measured on 23.07.2020 at 18.00, the data serving as the basis for the working area. Therefore, the plants in the shade are to be fostered and fed until the building is dismantled - after that, the shadow park can be seen in all its splendour.
In reference to the Italian garden culture, which succeeded in transforming its inspiration from the locality into a work of art - parco de mostri or the Crypta napolitana - an Italian name was chosen, therefore - Parco d'ombra - Park of the Shadow / Park of the Shade / Park in the Shadows.
