I am the first to admit that I really do not “get” (resonate with/appreciate) installation art like I probably should (I am working on it though). Here is one installation that is so beautiful I can relax and simply appreciate the wonderment of the work. I wish I could have seen it in person.
This installation is by Japanese artist Eiji Watanabe and was featured at the Kenji Taki Gallery in 2009. Hundreds of butterflies were hand cut from Illustrated Field Guides, and “liberated” onto the ceiling and walls. I can imagine the breathtaking view upon walking into the gallery. Wow!
