The Garden of Leaflessness


A Persian poet once said “The garden of leaflessness: who dares to say that it is not beautiful?”

This work was created by Golnar Roshan and selected by the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney for the Love Lace exhibition from 2011 to 2013.

The project pays homage to the constantly changing poetic lace which surrounds us and exists within trees, leaves and branches. It focusses in particular on lace’s transient qualities; the way the fabric changes in different lights and the way it forms beautiful shadows that are constantly moving and transforming.’
