Installation Artists Heywood and Condie
By Heywood and Condie in London, England (2017). The Greenhouse, also known as “Sacré Blur”, is a striking stained glass construction that provides a fascinating focal point of light and colour on the street. It’s a delightful curiosity, quite out of place in an urban residential street in Central London.
The Greenhouse was made by horticultural installation artists Heywood and Condie from salvaged 18th and 19th century ecclesiastical stained glass. The original Christian imagery that was dismantled has been reconfigured to present a world of mythical creatures, chimeras and folk hybrids.
