The Theatre of Flora

You do not get much of a feel for what The Theatre of Flora is about from this picture as it is a sound installation. This work by Kathleen Herbert’s explores connections between the current financial climate and the 17th century Dutch speculation in tulip bulbs through fragments of speech that bounce around the garden from the speakers.

What you do get a feel for is how pretty this section of the garden looks with its tall grasses, central floral display and protecting brick wall around it.
