Temps Qui Passe by Nathalie Decoster installed at Villa Lario, Lake Como
New and lovely Lake Como hotel Villa Làrio has given french sculptor Nathalie Decoster free rein to fill its historic gardens with her work, with spectacular results.
Decoster, whose public commissions can be found across the world from Shanghai to Charles de Gaulle airport, has sited her work so that it can be found reflected in the infinity pool and throughout the hundred year old cedar gardens. The positioning is intended to capitalise on the tranquil setting by embarking visitors on their own journey of contemplation, guided by what she refers to as her ‘messengers’.
The exhibition will run until October and is the first edition of what is planned to be an annual experience, part of the Martigny Foundation of the Lake.
