We are what we throw in the garbage, ask any anthropologist. While attempting a data recovery from my computer trash I was struck by the way many of the image files were partially covered in crazy geometric patterns. While scrolling through the photos at high speed I thought about how we all are bombarded with thousands of images daily. Most of these are totally mundane. But others are representative of serious subjects we should be addressing. However, far too often they become just another momentary flash in our collective mind.

I have also made a number of paintings using a similar graphic treatment created by the partially eaten files. But for those I am painting on litter that I find and use as a support and in some cases I also use the imagery.

From the press release:

Art will grow at Merkurgarten in Zurich from now on

Every month, starting from April, Swiss and European contemporary artists will be invited to create art projects at the urban garden in Kreuzplatz. Thier works will interact among both them and the place. The proximity will make evident the diversity of the many artistic poetics.  
The artworks will be on display every day until the end of the gardening season.

h 18.00:  opening and conversation with the artist 

"Petit Swiss"  
Art Sowing by Microcollection - Elisa Bollazzi / I   in collaboration with Hubert Renard / F

During the opening the artist Elisa Bollazzi will sow fragments of Swiss contemporary artists artworks: 
Albero diametro 22, 2015 by Veronica Tanzi / Alga Alimenia (lat.Halymenia Dichotoma), 2015 by Miki Tallone / Asphaltflowers, 2012 by Anna Kanai / Brainflowers, 2014 by Zeljka Marusic / Divine pine, 2014 by Mirjam Wanner / It is not intended to be anything but a tree to be seen, 2015 by Hektor Mamet / Lavender, 2015 by Erica Diazoni / Radici, 2015 by Aglaia Haritz / Tree of the knowledge of good only, 2015 by Cetusss.

Joan Miro once said: "More important than a work of art itself is what it will sow. Art can die, a painting can disappear. What counts is the seed."  

Microcollection is a collection of hundreds of fragments of contemporary artworks started in 1990 by the artist Elisa Bollazzi. The art fragments are saved from oblivion and visible only under a microscope. Microcollection Art sowings activates a process which changes the way we look at the «art system» in a beneficial wait that stimulates creativity and starts thought-provoking spaces in contemplation of a growing art garden.  

On the occasion, the artist Hubert Renard, as a botanist,  wrote  teaching notes which provide subtle, erudite observations, evoking the properties, qualities and virtues of each species planted in the garden.

During the aperitif the Conceptual cake by Elisa Bollazzi will please the palates.
