In this lecture, French landscape architect Catherine Mosbach will present a visual survey of her work and discuss her vision and her practice.

To coincide with the lecture, an exhibition of Mosbach’s work will be on show at the Wunderlich Gallery from 4-14 October.

‘Viewing projects as a juxtaposition of documents and realities, for us they form an iconographic montage of ‘kinetic bonds’. The image that we are proposing here is more of the nature of image as material, between the fabrications that precede it and processes that extend beyond it. Its visibility requires that the interwoven layers of several time-spans be shown: the short-span of production which threads and commands the taking of form; and the long-span of accumulation which transforms everything even as it perpetrates its memory.’ This philosophy underpins Mosbach’s approach to landscape design.

Catherine Mosbach is an internationally renowned landscape architect who has operated her own design practice in Paris since 1987 and produced unique landscapes in Monaco, the USA, Canada, China, Israel, and Vietnam, as well as her native France.
