Rebecca Louise Law: Spring Awakening at Bikini Berlin
At Bikini Berlin, thousands of colourful flowers are standing on their heads thanks to British artist Rebecca Louise Law, whose installation has been in place since the end of March and will be there until the first of May. It is her first project in Germany. The hanging flower garden extends over about 144 m²; thirty thousand flowers have been used. Like spring itself, the installation is temporary: visitors can observe daily how the colours and consistency of the floral work change in the natural drying process. The flowers will change in look and mood over the course of the exhibition.
Rebecca Louise Law is known for large-scale artworks made of natural materials such as flowers, stones, branches and fruit. Her floral installations play with the connection between people and nature; they have been shown at famous places like New York’s Times Square, Sotheby’s auction house, London’s Covent Garden, the Onassis Culture Centre in Athens and in the Art Basel event at the Vitra Design Museum.
