Dying Roses Installations
Red on Green by Anya Gallaccio Explores Life and Death of Flowers

The Red on Green installation can easily be viewed as a simple art piece. It is essentially made up of 10,000 roses that have been arranged carefully to cover the floor of a room in Tate Britain. Part of the exhibition ‘Art of the Garden,’ it is as though the artist simply clipped a rose bush clean to bring the blooms indoors. Nevertheless, there is more than meets the eye—at least upon first impressions.

Created by London-based Scottish artist Anya Gallaccio, the Red on Green installation revolves around the idea of life and death. The rose blooms strewn of the floor are never replaced. Thus, before onlookers very eyes, they are dying and, eventually, decomposing.

A poignant piece, the Red on Green installation is a reflection on the cycle of life.
