Elspeth Diederix – new work 13.03.2024 — 25.08.2024
Hedge House

The Hedge House features a presentation of new work by photographer and garden designer Elspeth Diederix (NL, 1971), which she developed especially for Kasteel Wijlre estate. Over the past two years, Diederix has regularly visited Wijlre for photographic research and became fascinated by the plants, flowers and grasses that grow and bloom in the 'wild' fields surrounding the estate. The exhibition in the Hedge House is the outcome of her intuitive, photographic exploration of South Limburg nature, and a monumental tribute to the small wonders that attentively looking at the inconspicuous can produce.

The exhibition presents itself as an all-over installation in which backgrounds of enlarged details of grasses, flowers and herbs are combined with smaller photographic works. Diederix also developed personalised herbaria with dried plants, grasses and flowers.

The architecture of the Hedge House explicitly lets its green surroundings in – Diederix's installation extends to interventions in the orchid greenhouse and the orangery, which are part of the exhibition pavilion.
