— Flowers Falling

This installation is titled The Falling Garden and while it was created for the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003 – and I think we may well have featured it before – but it’s well worth another look. It was housed in the Church of San Stae on the Grand Canal and was conceived and executed by Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger,

 

Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger create site-specific fantasias and interactive wonderlands which are an adaptation of nature. The two of them have collaborated since 1997 and it comes as no surprise that they are among the most successful contemporary Swiss artists. Their work is truly mesmerizing, extravagant, and full of fantasy, allegory and sheer beauty. The pair often deals with the paradox and contradiction through their work – good and evil, life and death, hope and despair.
