Fragments from the Garden - A Sculptural Installation, 2013
The goal was to creates a mythological place where archeological objects and historical relics have been discovered, but with a twist. I pick and choose from a number of different primordial first and mix those elements together. Inspired by the scientists & naturalists of the Enlightenment and the art patrons whose collections formed the basis for the world's great museums. Greeland has sought to create his own “Natural History Museum” of sorts, seeking to investigate, explore, record, capture & collect that which would evoke memories of the wonder and awe of the Victorian Wunderkammer or Cabinets of Curiosity. “Fragments from the Garden” has been assembled for display in the spirit of those great collectors of exotic specimens and wondrous renderings. You are invited to join Greeland’s expedition and explore the garden, the garden home and temple. In the spirit of exploration navigate with care; observe with a keen eye and a curious mind, but please do not touch.
*German - Wunderkammer "wonder-room" or Kunstkammer "art-room"
