The Undying Garden


"Botanical garden created by the British artist Marc Quinn. Quinn has eternally preserved nearly 1,000 flowers in full bloom by immersing them in 25 tons of liquid silcone at -80˚ Celsius. ”I wanted to make a beautiful environment,” says Quinn, “but there is also something sinister about a beauty that doesn’t decay. Like The Portrait of Dorian Gray, it implies decay somewhere else, and here somewhere else is the viewer.”
