Manuel Felisi: Giardinetta

For his installation titled "Giardinetta", artist Manuel Felisi transformed an old Bianchina automobile into a germinator of blossoming new life. The rooftop of the abandoned car functions as a hanging plant rack complete with glass test tubes, while inside the car, and underneath the flowers, rain falls within the compartment and creates a damp, moist world for bacteria and organisms to grow. Via his website, “Giardinetta is the story of the invincible force of life, which gets the upper hand even in a hulk of the industrial age, that in Felisi's hands becomes a little terraforming experiment.”
