Conceived and executed by Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger, Falling Garden (2003) is a world in which botanical curios are suspended from the ceiling of a 17th-century church for the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003. It’s a botanic tableau in three dimensions, against a backdrop of richly decorated Italian marble.
