In my project „trans_plant“ one square meter of meadow will be exchanged between the area of monastery Marienthal near Ostritz and the area of the Polish village Posada situated directly on the other side of the river.
The „trans_plant“ project deals with questions which refers to a piece of meadow wether you see it as a religious, political, biological, scientific or artistic unit/symbol. This piece can be seen as ground, soil, land, biotop or property. Each perspective requires another set of social or political action. So the exchange of pieces of meadow especially in this sensitive historic border landscape symbolices the overcoming of political, mental, religious and social borders.” Matthias Schumann
