Where the Wild Roses Grow @Schloss Görne

Once upon a time…Where The Wild Roses Grow is a group exhibition by the Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, featuring several well known artists at Schloss Görne.

The Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery is proud to present Where The Wild Roses Grow, our third summer exhibition at Schloss Görne, Germany. Each year, the gallery invites established and emerging artists from within and beyond their roster to exhibit their works within the dramatic setting of an 18th-century castle and amid the sprawling gardens. This year’s edition borrows its title from a song by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Kylie Minogue in homage to the wild surroundings and the transformative power of art.

A Sleeping beauty

Untouched for 50 years, Schloss Görne had previously fallen into a state of disrepair – its imposing Neo-Baroque facade rises up between the trees while many of its cavernous rooms remain crumbling and overgrown. The ongoing partnership between the gallery and the castle has breathed new life into the building, supporting its gradual restoration into a vibrant cultural destination where the beauty of art and nature combine.

Fountain of Youth, Paul Castanier 

In celebration of creative solidarity, the artists participating this year have each been asked to make new work in response to a song or a piece of music that has a special significance to them. Some of these pieces will be played during the opening weekend in which the castle will become a site of experimentation and discovery.
