PORTRAIT: LOIS WEINBERGER

Letter: To Lois Weinberger
 Ruderal Society Area II , 2004–, Studio Mirror Factory, Lower Austria

Austrian artist Lois Weinberger was a defender of the uncultivated, the wild side of plant life that he thought should never be ripped from the environment or from our memories. In his artworks, he constructed an abundance of gardens, always with an eye to their continued existence, in this world or the next. Following his death in April of this year, curator Philippe Van Cauteren, penned a letter to his dearly departed friend.
