Flower Installation by Rebecca Louise Law (through 30 June 2015)

The Onassis Cultural Centre is collaborating for the second year with the Double Decker team of curators to present an installation that showcases the spaces outside the theatres. After the original installation by Sebastien Preschoux with colourful threads “wrapping” the foyer, British artist Rebecca Louise Law transforms the entrance to the Centre with 11,000 flowers and creates an environment that will be on display until next summer. A continually evolving work of art, the installation welcomes and bids farewell to all visitors to the Centre, while reflecting its developing and diverse nature.
