25, Porchester Place - Connaught Village
Heywood and Condie's The Greenhouse (2015) is constructed from salvaged 18th and 19th Century stained glass. The artists reconfigured the original Christian imagery to create part animal/ part plant/ part insect beings inhabiting a primitive world of chimeras, mythical creatures and folkloric hybrids. 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.
