Gardens of the soul (The art season returns)
This was the title of an exhibition years ago in the Madrid Royal Botanic Garden
, "Jardines del alma".Sorry for the crappy picture
Last week, as part of the new art season in London I went to this opening of the Swiss artist Olaf Breuning at the Chisenhale Gallery. The strange creatures protrayed above are part of the intallation.
Not that I particularly liked the exhibition, but it reminded me of how gardens are such an important place within
us. A remote corner of our soul, a much needed place to run away and escape from everything. The gardens of the soul.
