Garden of Inflated Delights, 2022

4m clear LDPE sheeting.

By referencing "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch, the artists reflect on ambiguous phallic forms that blend seamlessly with other elements such as fruits, flowers, and architectural features. Sculptural elements crafted from reclaimed plastic mattress bags playfully mimic phallic forms found in nature. This collection of inflated flora overtake the site, creating a curious landscape of what could be cacti, mushrooms, penises or condoms…you decide! Garden of Inflated Delights spans over 100 feet. It comprises over 1043 pieces of hand cut and heat sealed pieces of plastic.

Commissioned by JEMS. Presented at the Rubber Hearts panel discussion at the Ace Hotel Toronto,  Toronto, ON.
