Gallery: Field of 2000 Wispy Dandelions Turned into Breathtaking Art Ex...

 
She wanted to feature the transient dandelion in a semi-permanent art exhibit.

It’s hard to believe, but Raseier picked 2,000 dandelions for this ethereal art exhibit, which was shown at the ArToll Summer Lab 2011. Once they were transported to the lab, each one was individually plugged into a white board, which was subsequently hung at the top of the ceiling. The artist has transformed something that is completely transient in nature into a semi-permanent work of art. In so doing, she has created a sort of timeless indoor meadow full of these wispy plants that seem to descend straight from the heavens.

    In 1999 Michel Francois made a very similar work on the Venice Bienale with Dandelions. In 2009 he used the flowers again in his solo exhibition in SMAK, Gent, Belgium.
