Contemporary Art

‘The Garden of Earthly Worries’ is a presentation of four abstract sculptures which explore the imbalance of humankind in nature. Each of the approximately three-meter-tall fragments of a globe, represent different chemical compounds that contribute to our changing climate.

Conceived as a sculptural and conceptual counterpoint to the ordered beauty of the palace garden; the gardens of the 17th century represent a perceived paradise, man’s perfection of nature. But, due to technology and human intervention, our current planet is rapidly changing.
