Mandla Reuter has planted a tree in the park and given the work the title The Park. What seems like a tautology is, at a closer look, a depiction that inquires into the origin of the park, whether it or this tree was there first, a tree the visitors encounter in the middle of their path. The plane tree introduces this question à-la-Magritte that queries our perception of reality.


Mandla Reuter lives and works in Berlin and Basel.
