The Dream of the Secret Garden - ‘Skanseninspiration’
This is one of the gates at an outdoor exhibition of gates this summer in our museum park.
While the buildings in the museum park are all old ones, the gates in this exhibition are all new creations. A number of artists were asked to make their own Dream Gate.
As it happens, the shared photo blog Soaring Through The World In Pictures, where I’ve been a member for about a year now, happens to have Fences and Gates as theme this week. So starting yesterday, I decided to share one gate per day on that blog. I did however also decide that I want to collect them all on this blog as well; I’ll just try not show the same gate on both blogs on the same day.
I’m starting here today with one gate that will not be appearing on the other blog (there were a couple of more gates in the exhibition than there are days of the week).
The name “Skansen-inspiration” refers (I think!) to a more well-known open air museum than ours: Skansen in our capital Stockholm, which also has a collection of old buildings .
I took more than one picture of most of the gates, and also of the name plates belonging to each one of them; and so I made one collage for each gate, showing it from different angles. In some of the pictures of the name plates, you will see my camera reflected ;) and also evidence of the fact that even though the sun was shining when I took the pictures, it had been raining earlier!
I hope you’ll enjoy the exhibition. I did!
