Cherish, Veronica Hodges’ floral installation

-
Giulia Ficicchia

I don’t want to fall into something blasphemous, but I don’t remember gladly the first time I entered a church: I was almost 5 years old and I was in St Peter’s. Just think that in a few seconds I saw exposed embalmed bodies and I run out from that place. So don’t ask me how much beautiful Saint Peter’s is, ask me instead of how my ideal church should be.

In this case, I leave Veronica Hedges to speak with her installation Cherish. The artist has created inside the famous Marmorkirken of Copenaghen a quite spring atmosphere: 16,000 paper cherry blossoms hang from the ceiling, bringing in it one of the most beautiful season to its spectators. While you recover from all this beauty, the installation wants to remind us the importance of nature, of its contribution to our eyes and lives, but above all its value, a concept that climate change is slowly destroying. It’s something that you really need to share and discuss because speaking about it is one of the greatest power we have to respect nature.

So, I definitely wouldn’t have run away from a church like this one.
