The Garden of Sculptural Delights was a collective environmental installation of nine artists work, curated by Jeanette Ingberman and Papo Colo. The Garden of Sculptural Delights, inspired by the 500 year old painting by Hieronymus Bosch, "The Garden of Earthly Delights", contemporizes an icon from the middle ages and in the process changes it from the medium of painting to sculpture.
The Garden of Sculptural Delights transformed the entire gallery into a contemporary version of a surreal and fantastic urban garden. The voluptuous, medieval imagery is updated and reconstituted into a symbolic landscape made up of different materials of contemporary culture.
