Monet’s Garden Inspires New Video Installation

Mark Fox spent three months as an artist-in-residence on the grounds at Giverny and searched for a way to capture the garden from a fresh perspective.

Monet’s famed garden at Giverny–which inspired some of his most iconic work, including Water Lilies–has now inspired a new video installation from artist Mark Fox.

Fox spent three months as an artist-in-residence on the grounds at Giverny and searched for a way to capture the garden from a fresh perspective. The result is Giverny: Journal of an Unseen Garden, a five-channel, high-definition underwater video that pays homage to Monet’s practice of studying the effects of shifting light on a single subject and captures the hourly and seasonal changes in different locations of the waterscape. The multiple screens resemble the long, horizontal orientation of the large Nymphéas (Water Lilies) series of paintings that Monet created for the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris. 

The installation is currently running at West Palm Beach Florida’s Norton Museum of Art through October 30, 2016.
