Using everyday materials, Marlene McCarty (1957) makes art upon examination and research of topical themes ranging from social and sexual inequality or the role of women. In addition to works of art from recent years, the exhibition (Into the Weeds) will also present a new project in cooperation with the Merian Gärten (The Merian Gardens), an institution of the Christoph Merian Stiftung (Christoph Merian Foundation) in Basel. At first glance, the garden at the entrance to the Kunsthaus seems familiar and inviting. The interplay between humans (women) and nature is the central theme, however. This garden brings together plants that, according to the artist and her historical research, symbolize and stand for the emancipation, power and knowledge of women. A team of the Merian Gardens has developed the garden.
