The stunningly showcased “Falling Garden” art installation aims to uproot ones traditional perception of botanical beauty and we just love the wonder it creates. By suspending various plant life from around the world, modern Swiss artists, Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger, enable one to experience flora in a new way: from the ground, looking up. The viewer participates by lying on the floor and gazing above. There, surrounded by a floating sea of color and whimsy, the experience is meant to transport one into a state of peaceful tranquility.
The installation of the piece in an Italian 17th-century mausoleum further adds to the spectacle. By juxtaposing the presence of death below the viewer with the abundant life and promise of renewal above, the exquisiteness and harmony of the suspended flowers is made much more significant.
Overall, the mix of garden life with a unique historic backdrop creates a dreamlike vision. “Falling Garden” can be seen as inspirational in bringing vintage or antique repurposed tokens into your own garden. In doing so you can capture a whimsical feel that makes your garden a truly special place.
