You’ve Never Experienced a Hanging Garden Like This One Before
Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger’s Falling Garden is made from a variety of materials that hail from all over the world. Plastic berries from India, waste paper from Venice, pigs’ teeth from Indonesia, rubber snakes from Cincinnati, and silk buds from Stockholm, just to name a few. Oh, and did I mention that all of these materials are hung from the ceiling, making it appear as if a flower garden is being dropped from the heavens? Yeah, that too.
Spectators best enjoy this airy but intricate installation by laying on their backs beneath its hanging tangles. Reminiscent of an upside-down Alice in Wonderland trip, experiencing this art project can almost feel otherworldly in its presence. It’s the type of space that will immediately saturate you and keep you entranced by its aesthetic. All you have to do? Just keep looking up.
