I am very honored to be part of the Mangalia Cultural Garden project. This is an important project for the area, with both social and environmental impact.Lise Wulff

Norwegian artist Lise Wulff works with land art and projects addressing the issues of nature and our environment. Woven Stones is a series of art works that she has been working with since 2008. It started out with quite small stones, and then grew into a project where she worked with stones the size of approximately 5 x 3 x 2 meters. She then puts yarn around the stones, using a crochet technique, leaving an asymmetrical pattern where the stone is visible through the yarn. The soft yarn meets the hard stone.
For ages, we have knitted, woven and crocheted clothes for our children to keep them warm. Now, the nature needs the same care from us. As a symbolic act of care for nature, the people of Mangalia can participate in making their own Woven Stones, or come to visit the garden to see some Woven Stones installed there.
In this way, the Norwegian nature will be present in Romania, and the two countries will be connected through a common art project.Lise Wulff
