The Institute for Art and Innovation encourages artists all across the globe to take on socially engaged art projects. These co-creative projects aim to generate social and environmental impact. The ‘Social Art Archive for Public Spaces’ is a new initiative by IFAI to promote social art interventions. Thereby, we encourage people to re-create them in their local context.
Fuen Chin is a Malaysan artist who takes inspiration from horticulture – the usage of art and science on the development and sustainable production of intensively cultivated food and plants. This results in various calligraphic floral paintings, art installations and interventions. In ‘Hypermorph Garden 3.0,’ the gold and blue colored flowers are created by many heart-shaped symbols. When placing the painting on the wall, the flowers represent a fake garden, seemingly comfortable, yet artificial. It is a portrait of the future garden.
