The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse comes to Connaught Village

25 Porchester Place – Connaught Village

The picturesque destination, Connaught Village located near Hyde Park , welcomes a new outdoor art installation The Greenhouse by Heywood and Condie, first seen as part of the Barbican exhibition, to sit amongst the already established art offering.

The Greenhouse is a prominent piece of sculptural architecture consisting of a greenhouse constructed from salvaged 18th and 19th stained glass. Heywood and Condie, reconstructed the original Christian imagery which has been dismantled and reclaimed to present a world of chimeras, mythical creatures and folkloric hybrids in bright primary colours.

Once inside, the greenhouse’s function as a sanctuary and space for introspection is magnified, the world of stained-glass chimeras reflected endlessly in its infinity floor. It is a place to contemplate the symbols and patterns that humans have used to celebrate the cycle of life, and to transcend the everyday.

The exhibition is located on Porchester Place , a short walk from Marble Arch and Oxford Street and it free to enter.
