Falling Garden

This beautiful installation was created for the 50th Biennal of Venice in 2003 and it's housed at the San Staë Church on the Canale Grande.

Falling Garden is the work of Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger.

Even more mesmerising that the actual hanging garden full of beuatiful flowers is the fact that visitors, and as to experience it to its best, lie on a bed right in the center of the curch, above the doge's gravestone  "and let the garden think for them". 

How dreamy!!
