10000 ceramic blooms celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring/一萬朵陶土花慶祝春天來臨!

Out of Sync at Somerset House
 Designed by Fernando Casasempere

這是在Somerset House的中庭正在展出的裝置藝術展
是來自智利的藝術家 Fernando Casasempere 所做的裝置藝術

have a look at the introduction on the website of Somerset House
"London based Chilean artist Fernando Casasempere’s large scale courtyard installation recreates the joy we feel at the site of blossoming daffodils signaling the end of winter and the beginning of spring. 10,000 ceramic daffodils, placed in a naturalistic setting within The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court, remind us of the wonder and accuracy of nature’s clock, against the backdrop of an ever changing environment. Since 1991 Casasempere has been working with clay that is a by-product from industrial processes."

looooooooots of flowers!!!

i have to admit that when i first saw the leaflet about this installation,
i find it a bit disgusting as i didn't know it was made out of ceramic,
i thought it was something with blood and organ of the animal or things like that,
but when i went to the fountain court inside Somerset House,
was astonished by the amount of flowers and the feeling it brought to me.
was really cool.
