Per Kristian Nygård's Baroque garden, on the third floor of the condemned building in Elgeseter gate 30B in Trondheim, expands on the moment before imminent collapse.
The installation filled two rooms in the empty apartment. The original living room door was closed off, and a new opening cut through the kitchen cabinets. The materials for the garden structures were taken from elsewhere in the building. The matting protects the floor and allows air for the plants to circulate, while chicken wire keeps the banked earth in place.
The garden in the apartment in Elgeseter gate 30B refers to how the final phase of a historic period is often characterised by decadence and denial.
