Foodbank for Pollinators
Landscape Artwork Weimar & London
This landscape artwork involved sowing native wildflower seeds as a symbolic act in Weimar, a city known for its highly controlled parks. Her installation in the form of the word “REWILD” provided new habitats for insects and invites us to reflect on how we can live in greater harmony with nature. The location chosen remotely during Covid 19 lockdowns was this grassy turf space underneath a gigantic three sided billboard which offers a complete contrast with the intention of the artwork. The new focus for the space was to create habitat and food sources for insects alongside the adverts for consumers.


Foodbank for Pollinators by Natalie Taylor was commissioned by the Goethe-Institut London for the Kultursymposium Weimar in cooperation with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the Lebenshilfe-Werk Weimar/Apolda e.V.. With thanks to the Stadt Weimar – Kulturstadt Europa. Creating an international link between Weimar and London, Natalie Taylor continues her art project in the borough of South Kensington, where a “Green Trail” will connect several sustainably designed installations and bring more biodiversity into the neighbourhood.

For the Kultursymposium Weimar 2021, both artists talk about the generational differences in their work and what they nevertheless have in common.
