Garden Sculpture Installation

Garden Sculpture features cultural products from two canonized gardens in history: the Alhambra Gardens in Spain and Katsura Imperial Palace Gardens in Japan. The Alhambra fountain and the Katsura lantern are appropriated as serialized hanging objects within the building and landscape environment of the museum.

The installation is placed within occupiable outdoor vitrines, to suggest a space for art that is an experiential zone viewed from within as well as from without. The viewer has the opportunity to participate as both subject and observer in this garden sculpture landscape.
