London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law is renowned for her larger than life artworks created from natural materials like flowers, stones, branches and fruits. Her floral installations playfully explore the relationships between humans and nature and have been exhibited around the world including Times Square in New York, the traditional auction house Sotheby’s, Covent Garden in London, the Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens and during Art Basel at the Vitra Design Museum.
From 23rd March until 1st May 2016, Rebecca Louise Law is presenting her first installation in Germany within the atrium of concept shopping mall Bikini Berlin. The installation consists of 30,000 live flowers of varying color and quality donated by Toll Was Blumen Machen, an affiliate of the Flower Council of Holland.
The vivid spectrum of colours not only brings the outdoor inside, but also provides an opportunity to visitors to contemplate nature. The installation is intended to dry over time, creating an ever-changing landscape of color and form.
“The installation is designed to be an inviting, enchanting celebration of the outdoors and of spring color,” Rebecca Louise lLaw says. “We decided to name the sculpture simply ‘Garten’ the German word for garden, in keeping with the simple, understated post-war design statement made by the Bikini Berlin building itself.”
