From our Danish Friends

The following was posted on

"We [Wooloo] just returned from the opening weekend of the Momentum Biennial, held in Moss, Norway. Wooloo was presenting our work 'Two Years' Untouched Garden' - a proposal to leave the garden outside one of the main exhibition venues fallow for two years, from this biennial until the opening of the next in 2013.

However, the very thought of this experiment has caused intense debate and protests in local Norwegian media, which has now resulted in a political decision to ban our work.

The grass outside the historical villa at Gallery F15 will continue to be cut each Friday."

Isn't the piece better non-realized than realized?
