In her work Car Garden (2021) Inge Meijer blends her car into its surroundings by covering it with as many plants as possible.
Inge Meijer was inspired by the work of Duván Antonio Ramírez, a plant breeder in Medellín, Colombia, who uses the exterior of his car to transport his plants. Meijer: "Cars are such functional objects, you see them everywhere and they take up a lot of space. Since I’ve known Ramirez's work, I see cars covered with plants everywhere. This became a starting point for the project 'Car Garden'.
