Gasp! She’s done it again … and again and again. These two flower-filled installations are the most recent work of  UK based artist Rebecca Louise Law. “Banquet” is installed at La Roche Jagu (France) until October 6, 2019. Here is the description of that piece:

“This installation makes reference to medieval banquets and the physical sensation of participating in a feast. Playing with the fantasy of the banquet through flowers, the artwork looks at the extreme sensual experience of sitting in a banqueting hall consumed by nature. Rebecca has been inspired by the original architecture and intention for the space designed by Catherine de Troguindy in the 15th century. The feminine touches to this Chateau combined with its beautiful gardens has inspired an artwork that will take the viewer back to the past whilst projecting them into a contemporary, fantastical and sensational space. Using a collection of flora, home grown on french soil in Normandy, Rebecca collected materials as close to the medieval flora as possible. This installation holds over 15,000 flora combined with copper wire.”

The second installation above is her most recent, and just opened over the weekend at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park (Michigan), and will be on view until March 1, 2020. It is titled, “The Womb“:

“The Womb explores the intimate relationship between humankind and nature. At the heart of the exhibition is an installation offering the viewer a solitary, sublime experience of being enveloped in nature. Accompanying mixed media artworks examine the Womb as a natural cocoon … Rebecca Louise Law has created an immersive installation working with dozens of volunteers and a team of horticulture staff.  As visitors walk through nearly a million dried flowers, they are invited to make a connection with nature.”

Stunning. As always. ps. Rebecca is featured in my book, A BIG IMPORTANT ART BOOK – Now With Women, because of course she is!
