Josh Sperling’s exhibition ‘Head Over Heels’ is a contemporary climax from the bottom to the top floor. The works combine nature and craftsmanship through different stages of colour, canvas, and complexity. Their optical play presents mesmerizing mazes between mandalas and marble game.
Giant Triple Mushroom / An Easter Proposition
Carsten Höller’s 'Giant Triple Mushroom (Fly Agaric, Bay Bolete, Plums and Custard)' (2018) is what its title says: a giant sculpture composed of fragments of a Fly Agaric, Bay Bolete, and Plums and Custard mushrooms. As the mushroom’s two-sided effects, the installation creates perplexity, excitement, and delight. A contemporary artistic culinary Easter proposition.

See a Tree Growing: Giuseppe Penone
