A layer of living moss forms an indoor landscape in Lizzy Rose’s new audio-visual installation at Crate. Incorporating video, sound, hand-made objects and manipulated plant-life, the work explores landscape, form, nostalgia and the pursuit of knowledge between cultures


Lizzy Rose visited Japan in 2016 to research a form of floristry called ikebana which has been practiced for over 600 years.


Rose's interest lies in the hidden culture surrounding this art form, which she examines by drawing parallels between The Art of Flower Arranging, a book produced in the 1950's, and the classes held today in Tokyo by the Ohara School of Ikebana for International students.

The Art of Flower Arranging by Ishimoto is a instructional guide on how to use the simplified principles of Ikebana to decorate your home. Ishimoto encourages the user to observe nature and landscape. Pure Ikebana is more precise, combining geometry and natural forms; the wildness of nature meeting rational aesthetics.  By replicating landscape it aims to create a transformative space that evokes the sublime, which is described as a kind of spirituality, or sacred place.

Alongside the exhibition there will be an opportunity to take part in a workshop creating your arrangement from nature. This will be a free workshop. Time and venue to be confirmed.

The exhibition was funded by the Arts Council, The Great Britain Saskawa Foundation and Crate.
