Rachel Joy from Melbourne, Australia, 2013, in the pleasure garden after work was done in the printshop. The text wandeln is carved into a paving stone of local pink sandstone located on a pathway leading from one of the main entry points to the Lustgarten and is intended to be discovered by the viewer. Because the work is set into the ground the viewer must slow down and perhaps even come to a complete stop in order to read and understand the text.  This deliberate slowing of pace is intended to bring the viewer towards a more peaceful and calm experience of the hidden garden.  When pausing to read the text inscribed in the paving stone the viewer must bow their head as if in prayer or reverence, thus further adding to the feeling that one is entering a special place.  The physical act of bowing in response to wandeln makes the viewer a part of the work itself, in a sense they have been changed by their experience of the work and become part of it.  As an element in the Kunstlerpfad (artists trail) wandeln is an important choice of words because it means not only to walk but also to change or convert and the hope is that people who enter this garden will be changed by their journey through it.

“The Beisinghoff Printmaking Residency is more than just the opportunity to work in a print studio. It provides an intimate setting that ignites the senses.  The large garden outside the studio is a blaze of color by mid-summer while the sound of farm animals mingles with church bells throughout the day.  Nestled in the patchwork geometry of the German countryside, the village of Rhoden is a unique place to create work.  You will also gain a sense of German history and culture from living with the Besinghoffs, two extraordinary people who are dedicated to the arts.” Susan Goethel Campbell
