전 세계적으로 인류는 수 백가지의 식물로 빗자루를 만들어왔다. 갈대(Phragmites australis)는 그 중 대표적인 식물이다. 갈대는 습지나 물가에서 자라는 벼과(Poaceae) 식물로 강과 바다가 만나는 기수역 일대에도 잘 자란다. 충청남도 서천에는 금강 어귀에서 채취한 갈대 꽃으로 만든 빗자루인 ‘갈꽃비’를 만드는 장인들의 기술이 대대로 이어져왔으나, 플라스틱 재질 빗자루와 진공청소기에 밀려 서서히 그 전통이 사라지고 있다. 또한 금강하구둑이 들어선 이래 기수역 일대의 생태계가 교란되고, 갈대밭 역시 점차 훼손되었다. 천연 빗자루의 소멸은 한 지역의 생태계가 교란되며 그에 기반한 오랜 전통 기술이 사라지는 것을 암시한다. 한 식물이 사라진다는 것은 그와 연관된 복합 생태계와 그와 연관된 인류 문화 유산의 한 부분이 사라진다는 것을 의미한다.

There are hundreds of plants that are used to make brooms all over the world. Reed(Phragmites australis) is a representative plant among them. Reed is a Poaceae plant that grows in wetlands or watersides, and grows well in the brackish water area where rivers and seas meet. In Seocheon, Chungcheongnam-do, the techniques of craftsmen to make 'reed-flower broom', a broom made of reed flowers collected from the mouth of Geum River, have been handed down from generation to generation, but the tradition is gradually disappearing due to plastic brooms and vacuum cleaners. In addition, since the Geum River estuary bank was built, the ecosystem around the confluence area was disturbed, and the reed fields were also gradually damaged. The disappearance of natural brooms implies that the ecosystems of a region are disturbed and the old traditional techniques based on them disappear. The disappearance of a plant means the disappearance of the complex ecosystem associated with it and a part of the cultural heritage associated with it.

블랙메도우에는 서천 갈꽃비를 만들기 위해 금강변에서 채취한 갈대꽃과 동남아시아에서 흔히 쓰는 사탕수수 두 종류의 식물종이 쓰였다. 베니스 현장을 방문할 수 있다면 두 식물의 차이를 발견해 보시길.

Black Meadow uses two types of plant species; Reed flowers collected from the Geum River for Seocheon 'reed-flower brooms' and sugarcane commonly used in Southeast Asia. Please discover the differences between two plants on site.

Black Meadow: A Story of Disappearing Nature And Life

Black Meadow: A Story of Disappearing Nature And Life

Venice, Installation

Facing the state of the natural world in the anthropocene

Overview

Created by artist and landscape architect Ah-Yeon Kim, Black Meadow represents a world deprived of life. There are various traditions of making brooms out of reeds and other straw-like grasses across the globe. However, these local heritages of broom-making with natural materials are in danger of disappearing due to the disturbance or destruction of regional ecosystems. A carpet representing an infertile meadow made of these broom grasses will anchor Future School’s Venice campus, spread at the heart of the Korean Pavilion. In this sterile field, Future School participants will begin contemplating the life and death before us and before our planet.
