The Hidden Dahlia Garden of Anouk Vogel.

ano5Located in the entrenchment on the roof of Fort near Spijkerboor, one of the forts on the defense line of Amsterdam, a large installation composed of 1400 dahlias was completely hidden from the outside world and could only be discovered after a journey through the dark and moist fort.ano3 A matrix of 6 different colours and 5 varying flower shapes were precisely arranged in a centrifugal geometric pattern that formed a gradient from dark red to white. Visitors were invited to wander through this blossoming field as well as to view the installation from the fort’s roof. From there it could be seen in juxtaposition with the rigid geometry of the Beemster polder.ano4
