il film su Piet Oudolf

A proposito di quel breve video su Vimeo “Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall”: in sostanza si tratta di un documentario che Thomas Piper girerà durante cinque stagioni (inizia e finisce in autunno) al seguito di Piet Oudolf nei suoi giardini.
Le informazioni più precise e chiare le trovate sul tumblr di Adam Woodruff, un “garden artisan” americano, come lui si definisce.

This feature documentary will follow Piet and a number of his most important gardens across five seasons, capturing, in beautiful high-definition cinematography, all the aspects that make his designs so unique and revolutionary: painterly compositions featuring forgotten or unheralded plants; the celebration of a plant’s full life cycle including death; and the orchestration of these elements in gardens that evoke the emotional responses of being in the wild – and are, in fact, fantastically bio-diverse – but done so by meticulous design.

Vale proprio la pena di leggerlo con attenzione. E se avete fatto caso a ciò che Oudolf dice nel video

These are the drawings for Durslade. This is a meadow of one and a half acre. It’s a complex of farmhouses that’s going to renovate and become a gallery and also a place where the artists can stay. It’s meant to get lost in, so it’s quite big. I feel very much connected with Durslade and the people that asked me to do the garden.

non potete che essere come me che guardo questa pagina e non vedo l’ora che arrivi il 14 settembre!
