Gardens as places for critique, culture and selforganization
The first in a row of Public Picnics takes place in one of the finest
wild nature areas on outer Nørrebro. From the plot you can see
the elevated train and the high rises in Lundtoftegade. There are
growing wild apples and wild raspberries and weeds high enough to

Stockters tool for inspection and investigation of nature at the opening of Publik Picnic 3. See more works here: www.hstockter.de
my projects I have explored the possibilities for using berries
and fruits from the plot to make food for the participants in the
events. This mirrors strategies used by artists as a consequence of
them living on the fringe of society. The project also takes up
the relation between food production and the city. Anette Sletnes 2007. See images and a summary
Snöleoparden and Henning Frimann built music on the spot with homegrown instruments and an electronic guitar from Pakistan.
Still from In da club by Sonja Lillebæk Christensen, the film

TO NATURE - An Asters plantation by Kevin
Asters are treated in a way that keeps them short like 20cm high to fit
easily into a window still. If asters are planted out into the garden
they will bloom again the coming year, but this time in its original
version and can become 60cm and some sorts up to 150cm tall.
Nis Rømer: Free Apples: One of three boxes of apples picked from
unregulated public spaces in Tikøbgade,
Krudtløbsgade and Christiania, with individual descriptions
of the places and apples.

from the area helped clean up the garbage that had gathered over the
years at the plot. After that we started planting. Here its Katrine and
Jesper planting basil. The trick to make them grow is to separate the
plants from each other, giving them space to grow.
Ad hoc playground.
Åbille planted mint in tires found on the plot (they were brand new).
Quite a lot of wood were lying around, we put it out in the open to get an overview.
After an idea by Camilla Berner, the only intervention we did to the
plot was to trample a few paths to open up the plot for more uses. We
made a fireplace and built benches with the help of friends and family.
The hole in the fence was fixed to make a nicer entrance in the Hillerødgade end.
