Cardboard, plants, pallets, sound
The installation ‘Flower Press’ can be experienced as a fusion of impressions from the cardboard factory's industrial universe and ideas that have arisen during the work of printing plants on the factory's powerful machines.

Walks in the cardboard forest with locally known capacities; horticulturist and landscape architect Jacques Gustin, author Gerd Laugesen and nature guide Jens Frydendal, have inspired the collection of the plants.Nature has been taken inside and has left its mark on the wet cardboard under a ton of heavy pressure.

Cardboard and plants, water and heat, light and shadow, pallets and poetry merge into a sensuous narrative on the landing in the stairwell and in the Operations Office's room.

Magnus Munk Tækker has composed a 2-part soundtrack for ‘Flower Press’ composed of field recordings from the factory and the surrounding nature. Bird whistles and streams meet factory alarms and noisy pistons in an evocative composition.

Plants from the cardboard forest included in the installation:
Maple / Ash / Birch / Fern / Beaver Aspen / Berry medlar / Beech / Pine / Oak / Elm / Smooth-leafed hawk / Yellow Iris / Hag-wild plum / Hazel / Honeysuckle / Larch / Horsetail / Willow / Rowanberry / Red Oak / Red spruce / Spruce / Buttercup / Squatter Cabbage / Roof / Wild Chervil / Wild paradise apple
