The artist Sonja Grimm lovingly tears up some of the first photographic works to put them together anew. Sonja Grimm found the motifs for this in the archives of famous museums, where they slumbered in the archives as photograms of the world’s first photo book.

More than 150 years ago, biologist Anna Atkins used iron blue printing to create photosensitive papers to fix the shadows cast by plants. The power of the sun has fixed the light-sensitive emusion on the paper to make the negative form of the shadow visible after washing it out.

With the sales proceeds from the Dust Flower Editions, we help our farmers in Burkina Faso to transform the wastelands of industrial agriculture into fertile farmland – by collecting rainwater.

The famous view over the edge of the plate is the famous view for the studied master student of painting and performance art with her own

porcelain design

which completes the Dust Flower series. The much-praised collector’s item has been particularly popular at charity events and CSR campaigns, as every plate sold automatically fills the plates of the farming families in Burkina Faso.

An art picture for one year of food

We are very pleased that the artist Sonja Grimm supports us with a unique work of art. The idea of the humanitarian art project Dust Flower appealed to us immediately and transports the idea of participation in a wonderful way:

  • The proceeds from a sold art edition means to gain 200 square meters of new arable land from recultivated eroded soil.
  • With five works of art sold, the existence of a farming family is sustainably secured!

The artist and curator Sonja Grimm is responsible for the Gallery Masterpiece Edition program for contemporary photography. The launch of the gallery, which was founded in 2015, was supported by the F.A.Z. as a cooperation partner with its own magazine. For Sonja Grimm, the exchange in the international art scene is an important pulse feeler for her performance art, which has also been shown at the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and the Frauenmuseum Bonn, among others.

The idea of Dust Flower goes beyond the mere purchase of the editions. Companies seeking a partnership with Terra Verde can look forward to innovative concepts with the creative team of the artist.
