Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg

Miro modo (lat.) can be translated as "in a wonderful way". An invitation to look differently at what has already been seen or what is to be discovered anew. Victoria houses have been built in many botanical gardens since the 19th century to attractively present the giant water lilies of the genus Victoria, named after the English queen, and other aquatic plants to the public. The flowers bloom for only two nights, turning from pure white to pink on the second evening, producing warmth and a fruity fragrance. In this way, the giant water lily attracts beetles for pollination and, through its mysterious appearance, people in equal measure. The installation miro modo plays with perception, casting fleeting reflections of light on glass, water and botany. A game of deception between architecture and nature, suspended between static and change.
