Hortus Conclusus

hortus conclusus

This weeks peculiar image is a work by Zeger Reyers. In 2001 he vaccinated some everyday objects – found in the basement of Rotterdam Art Centre Witte de With – with oyster mushroom spores. Shortly afterwards, colorful fungi sprouted from archive boxes, furniture and fire hoses.

Reyers (1966) is known for his installations in which he confronts the artificial, man-made world, with the forces of nature and their miraculous beauty.
