The Aluminum Garden

This September, Berlin based Studio Picknick presents the Japanese artist Toshihiko Mitsuya's "The Aluminum Garden",  an installation of 180 structural studies of plants, specifically designed for the space, hand-made out of aluminium foil.

Aluminium is a surface material shaped by the forces around it. Far from static, it takes on the feeling of its surroundings, the wind, the light and the hands that touch it. As a material, aluminium starts in a huge factory and ends in something precious yet transitive: the installation reclaims an industrial material back to nature.

THE ALUMINIUM GARDEN tests the boundaries of the material, which can develop immense strength, while appearing fragile and delicate. Because of its soft properties, each plant, and thus the whole garden, can change its shape, considering the elements and direction of light in its set-up. Thus, the plants form one continuous landscape and become a flexible architecture to shape a social environment.

For more information about this project, please visit the introduction and photo gallery of this exhibition.
