21 Dresses Installed

21 dresses installed at VanDusen Botanical Garden

The project began in July and 21 dresses were completed by mid september. They form a triangle with he earliest dresses at the back row and the last one at the very front. All the dresses were left on site in the garden to decompose over time, proving that even though they are “old” they are still beautiful.
Each dress was made with plant material from the woman’s garden, which is why they are all unique. It was especially challenging when i received fresh flowers and leaves that i had never worked with before but i discovered many great materials and techniques throught his process. The installation will be up until the end of October, 2012.
