The Garden of Memories

Exhibition - Prince Pueckler‘s World
17min. 5-channel HD video, 22-channel audio, 2006

The focal point of the exhibition is the multi-channel video installation “The Garden of Memories”, which brings the metaphysical world of Pueckler and his landscape architecture to life. Four synchronised screens present the visitor with the beauty of the park throughout the year within the structure of an ideal walk from east to west. Fragmentary narrative sequences combined with animations present Prince Pueckler in his era within the park.
