I simply lost my breath when I saw this magical art installation.It is so monumental but so delicate and highly detailed.
The installation is called "The Falling Garden",created for the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003 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. They often deals with the paradox and contradiction through their work – good and evil, life and death, hope and despair.
All I can say is, enjoy!
