In the shadow of a nuclear station in Dungeness, England sits Derek Jarman’s meditative and arid garden. Poking out of the flint surface, its irises, plants and rusty crosses made from wrenches, is a far cry from the green monochrome of Bree Van de Kampf’s perfectly tended lawns that adorn Wisteria Lane.

ROOM E-10 27’s garden will be tended in a studio situated in the heart of old Paris. There among works by thirteen different artists one finds objects and interventions that contribute to an environment, which in their quixotic attempts at ecological symbioses, are marked in part by the creative ferocity of nature — a concept put forward by French botanist Francis Hallé. They take on and challenge its domestic dimension through concepts of acceleration and degeneration, which threaten to overcome and menace it.
