Lou-Lou van Staaveren comes from a family of flower farmers and has always been drawn to plants and greenery. Over the past years, the garden has become the arena of her photography practice, serving as both the playground and laboratory. For van Staaveren, gardening and photography stand surprisingly close: both the gardener and photographer operate with similar control, observing on one hand and intervening on the other. Like a gardener shaping a landscape, she creates new realities through images, constructing paradises and utopias. The artist's work sparks a sense of eerie wonder, encouraging the viewer to question their anthropocentric position and the consequences of idealizing and controlling our natural environment.
