WINTER GARTEN

Knitted silence tapestry experience at Direktoren Haus Berlin by Signe Emdal 2011.

Gallery DIREKTORENHAUS in Berlin invited Signe Emdal to create one of her knitted silence tapestry experiments. Transforming the identity of a room with knitted textiles. Working around Ward & the glass box.

Midt 19th century: Nathaniel Ward (a victorian gentleman) invents a transportable glass box for exotic plants to stay alive during transport from the far East. The glass box allows the european upper class to build miniature jungles. A trend starts with especially Ferns & palm-tree plants. Everybody wants an indoor glass-cabinet with exotic plants. The glass-box changes everything!
