QUIRK OF THE MONTH - Chihuly at Kew Gardens

Chihuly Chihuly

Dale Chihuly is a world renowned  contemporary glass artist and his new exhibition is now live at Kew Gardens, London's UNESCO world heritage site.

 

Expect to find lots of colour and light which blends in with the plants and greenery around the gardens and its surroundings.

 

32 art installations are dotted around the gardens, Temperate House, the world's largest surviving Victorian glasshouse which has recently undergone a major restoration.

 

There is film detailing Chihuly's creative work and this can be seen in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery where there is also a gift shop where you can take home some memrobilia. The glass works may set you back a few thousand but a pack of cards is £12!

 

A stunning exhibition, one not to be missed. Please find all images of the installations on Anomalous Londons' Facebook Page and videos of some favorites on Anomalous London's Instagram profile.

 

Kew Gardens provides the perfect outdoor gallery space and Chihuly's artworks are often described as exaggerated celebrations of what is found in nature.

 

There is a walking trail provided from the ticket office. This exhibition is free and is included in the price of a day ticket to Kew Gardens. Please do share your pictures with us when you visit.

 

Interesting facts about this exhibition:

 

  • 11 shipping containers were required to bring the artworks across from Seattle, USA.
  • 18 people were part of the installation team.
  • The massive Persians installation in Temperate House is 30 feet in height and it hovers 19 metres above the ground. This is the piece to see out of the whole exhibition as it suspends from the ceiling of the glasshouse and the individual elements are probably the largest of its kind blown.
