Falling Garden

Falling Garden … there’s a wonderful romantic ring to it, it was created for the 5oth Venice Biennial, 2003. To celebrate National Poetry Day, a while ago I was looking for something tweetable, this piece had that willing suspension of disbelief for a moment … I was breathless. The staging of it is very theatrical the plants and flowers suspended in mid-air, within the timeless of the 17th-century Baroque style interior of San Staë church on the Canale Grande ... evokes feelings of passion and emotion. As seen from the photographs the whiteness, yet richly ornate space is the perfect backdrop as it enables the colours, shapes and textures of the flowers and seeds to interact. I wonder about the scale of the installation, it does seem pretty big from the areal view although this kind of perspective we could only of gained by being there.
