Hedge Walk

First time ever in Germany: A project by Andy Goldsworthy

As a new project of the Nieheim Art Trail, Andy Goldsworthy will create the Hedge Walk in a field about two kilometers south of the village of Holzhausen. Over time, more than 1000 hawthorn plants will grow together to form a 180-meter-long, walkable, natural tunnel. Gently ascending a hill, visitors always have the light at the upper end in view as they walk, while inside the thorny hedge they will experience the security and intimacy of the space, as in an animal burrow. Moreover, as a landscape marker, it not only provides actual habitat for local wildlife, but also evokes the beauty and utility of a landscape once dominated by hedgerows.

Andy Goldsworthy’s knowledge of the enduring link between his work and site are crucial in this regard. Hedge Walk will grow into a strong and enduring landscape marker, sending a lasting signal of the coexistence of people and the environment.
