Catherine Chenery x Riot Balloons to exhibit an immersive jungle dreamscape at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017
I am thrilled to announce that this summer, I am going to be collaborating with the wonderful Fiona MacOwen of Riot Balloons to bring you CHELSEA JUNGLE.
This year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, as you walk through the tunnel which connects Main Avenue and Ranelagh Gardens, you will find yourself entering a jungle dream with a canopy of exotic leaves and colourful balloons. By immersing you into an imaginary jungle scene, the designers aim to embrace the lighter side of life and the importance of escaping reality every now and then, if only for a moment. The tunnel gives you an opportunity to let your mind wander into a dreamscape, as though you have let yourself drift into a daydream of luscious plants and clouds of colour, before re-entering reality at the other end. The installation encourages us to take our time, not rushing to our destination, but enjoying the journey.
