The structure of the installation symbolises the acronym WALA: “warmth, ash, light, ash” – the unique preservation method developed by company founder Rudolf Hauschka. “Many people know hardly anything about the company behind the products, but there is so much to tell,” explains Burstein.
Eyal Burstein created his public garden for the NOMAD fair in Venice, in the midst of a vibrant city full of art and design. “I always have certain wishes or expectations about the impact my art will have on people. I have no influence over what actually happens once it's out there. But it made me happy to see people leave the hectic environment, enter the garden, and find peace and relaxation for their senses for a short while.”
