Beautiful Upside Down Gardens Suspended From the Ceiling

Rebecca Louise Law is known for her breathtaking installations that consist of thousands of hanging flowers suspended overhead. Last February, she was commissioned by London’s Garden Museum to create a temporary, site-specific work for their Floriculture: Flowers, Love and Money exhibition. 3,500 multicolored roses were hung on copper wire and suspended in the central part of the historic building. Visitors were invited to walk beneath the ethereal canopy.

She was welcome back this year for the Garden Museum’s new show called Fashion & Gardens: Spring/Summer-Autumn/Winter, open now until April 27. Co-hosted by British Vogue, the exhibition explores the link between fashion and gardens. Law’s installation is bigger and better this year. Called The Flower Garden Display’d, it was created using over 4,600 various blooms.

Looking through her body of work, you’ll find that Law loves working on a grand scale. For a dinner sponsored by Hermes and held annually at the The Thtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels to raise money for opera, she hung 6,200 blue and green hydrangeas on copper wire. Incredibly, they looked as if they were magically raining down on the stage below (see last three images).
