Kennedy Station [Emerging artist]
Dagmara Genda
“Reorganization of One Hedge”

Artist’s concept

Reorganization of One Hedge is a work that is specific to its site at Kennedy station. The artist, Dagmara Genda, wants to answer the question: ‘How do things change with time?’ The artist began by taking photographs of the leaves of one hedge in different lighting conditions over a period of several months. The images of the leaves were cut out by hand, forming a collection of leaves of many different colours – like the colours on a painter’s palette. The leaves were then put together in a collage, and that collage will be printed onto glass so that coloured light will stream in through a station skylight, and light boxes with the leaf patterns will be set in the walls of a hallway in the station, bringing light and greenery into the station.
