A Magical 'Garden of Whispers' Within A French Gothic Church

hans_op_de_beeck_magical_garden_of_whispers_inhideout_02Artist Hans Op de Beeck has created a sculptural installation named “The Garden of Whispers” by staging an immersive and fictional environment within the Gothic Church of the Jacobins in Toulouse. Visitors will walk on a makeshift wooden pathway through the “vast, inner expanse of the 13th century brick edifice, snaking through large dunes of sand, bare tree branches, simple strands of light, and a full-scale campsite.” The magical and mysterious ambiance will prompt visitors to introspectively reflect on the scenes around them. The artist has incorporated a range of historical, religious and mythological references into ‘The Garden of Whispers’, turning it into an ‘emotion-oriented courtyard’.
