The title “I live with my brat in a high-rise flat" refers to Roald Dahl's adaptation of the children’s rhyme "Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary", where a brief, humorous conversation takes place about a flourishing garden. The Infinity installation of mirrored glass transports the nature of a garden into the urban space as fragmentary drawings: one line growing beside another: wild, raw, reduced, irregular and, at the same time, delicate.
The SEVEN SWANS is one of only three vegetarian star restaurants in Germany. Ricky Saward cooks here with talents acquired at the permaculture brewers meadows at the city gates, and, among other awards, was honored with the Michelin-Sustainability Award in 2017.
