Grid – patterns in grass

Amorpark 17.5.2019
In May Maria Finn and landscape architect Jacob Kamp installed a temporary artwork in grass, Grid, in the Amorpark in Copenhagen. The work used the existing lawns that were cut in a grid, where the squares in the pattern were allowed to grow high, while the stripes were cut down and created paths where you could walk. To enforce the biodiversity in the city, the grass are allowed to grow high several places in the city’s parks and this was utilized in Grid to create a spatial element that offers a new experience of the park.

Mirakel (after Josef Frank)

Maria Finn and Jacob Kamp, landscape architect, have together created a work in grass for Olseröd’s Konsthall. The work is titled “Mirakel (after Josef Frank)”, and is based on Josef Frank’s textile pattern with the same title. Frank’s title suggests that it is a miracle that a large pattern can take shape out of a few parts that are repeated. Finn and Kamp uses a part of the pattern for a grass work where a simplified drawing is transferred to grass that is allowed to grow high over the summer. Frank created textiles for the home, and when patterns from them are transferred to a landscape, they also enlarge the intimate space where they usually occur. The frames of the home are expanded and connected to their surroundings.
