To mark its Spring season, Bikini Berlin has commissioned British artist Rebecca Louise Law to create a hanging artwork made out of 30,000 flowers. The installation was unveiled this week and will remain in place until May 1.
The artwork is titled ‘Garten’ and took four days to install, says Law. Flowers are suspended from a metal truss hanging from the building’s atrium and each one is held in place by copper wire. With each row a different height, it looks a little like an upside down garden or meadow. Plants were donated by Tollwasblumenmachen.de, an affiliate of the Flower Council of Holland, and Law worked with a local team to create the installation. Flowers will dry out and darken over time and will be used by Law to create permanent sculptures once the installation comes down.
