"It Takes Work To Get The Natural Look" was an architectural intervention by duo Gemma Savio and Chloé Roubert in the large lawn facing the Bauhaus building. Developed during a 3-month research residency through archival and topographic work, the duo mowed the inscription it takes work to get the natural look in 2 months of flora growth over 3 weeks.
The work explored the labor, technologies and organic matter necessary to produce “nature” – an agent, medium and commodity of modernity – and that continues to sustain our contemporary condition.
A guided walk entitled "It Takes Work to Get the Natural Look: Mapping the Modern Lawn," was accompanied the work. A map was distributed. It can be found here.
