An exhibit at the Venice Biennial juxtaposes nature in a highly man-made setting with stunning results.

As part of the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003, artists Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzilinger created a beautiful installation inside the Church of San Stae in central Venice. They used thousands of plastic flowers, branches, seeds, crystals, quills and even animal bones, and hung them individually floating in the air. Visitors were invited to lie on a bed in the center of the church to view the work. Seen from that angle, it’s as if a garden has exploded into tiny pieces and the falling debris hang suspended in time. The chaotic, artificial artwork juxtaposed against the calm and quiet church setting is truly striking.
