Bales 2014/2017

The project BALES 2014/2017 was developed for the park of the Kunstareal in Munich, transforming the urban site into an agricultural field in which baling presses gathered industrial straw in bright fluo colors scattered by the artist on the well-groomed lawns of the park into round multicolored bales.

BALES is transformed, focusing on the complex relationship between natural and artificial, between industrial work (now an integral part of most farms) and a personal, manual relationship with nature.
