The work BE(E)HERE contains both an ecological and an artistic aspect and is realised by the artist Ines Hock (1960) using her own artistic means, painting and drawing. The flowering colours of the endangered plants are placed in an artistic context.

The art historian Peter Lodermeyer describes this as follows: “The artificial “flowers” floating on invisible stems, which appear like words on a large text surface, create a fascinating, three-dimensional, colourful drawing on the green background of the lawn. … The Latin names on the individual forms read, beyond their informative content, like a kind of concrete poetry, like a magical incantation of nature: “Polygala serpyllifolia, Dianthus carthusianorum, Isolepsis fluitans…

Ines Hock studied fine arts in Mainz, Tucson Arizona and at the Düsseldorf Academy. As part of her numerous exhibitions in museums and galleries (exhibitions), she was already invited to show her work in Cologne parks in 20015 and 2018. 2022 presented by the Schroth Collection and Wilhelm Morgner Museum, Soest with an extensive programme and the support of BUND.

The majority of society wants climate protection, but does not want to change. It is becoming nervous, susceptible to campaigns by the fossil fuel lobby, superstition and right-wing influences.

People are in favour of doing something about man-made global warming, but they still want to fly on holiday. We are in denial about our own fossil fuel addiction. The other countries, the politicians, should take action against the climate crisis. We don’t want to recognise our own responsibility as voters for political parties and as consumers of flights, cars and goods who cause CO₂ emissions. Of course they want things to change, but not in their own lives. Science calls this behaviour cognitive dissonance.

The focus is particularly on the ROTEN LISTE NRW. The scandals about insecticides in eggs, etc. are nothing compared to the disappearance of biodiversity. With the reduction of plants, 85% of our insects are disappearing as a result…

The exhibition seeks answers that reconcile the desire for climate protection with society’s behaviour.
