Grow Your Own - Stephanie Nava Considering Some Drawings


Publisher Dieselkraftwerk Cottbus

ISBN 9783942798556


A retrospective of Stéphanie Nava's drawings in five exhibitions, with an essay by Marie de Brugerolle. “It all began with the project for my residency in London. My initial idea was to work on a garden allotment in such a way that, somehow or other, the gardening would generate a parallel in the studio. As soon as I arrived, I put my name down for an allotment – and then I waited. (...) I began working on a plan – which evolved into a model – of my future strip of land, using manuals and archival material to decide on the layout and the varieties to be planted. (...) So I decided to create this object on paper, life-size, and gave up on the idea of actually working the soil."
