Architect Daniel Libeskind’s The Garden of Earthly Worries will be on show in the gardens of Holland’s Het Loo palace from 2 April until mid 2021.

This will be the first time that the 17th-century palace has hosted this kind of outdoor contemporary art show.

Abstract warnings

The Garden of Earthly Worries comprises four abstract sculptures which explore how humanity is proving a negative influence on the natural world.

Each of the approximately three-metre-tall fragments of a globe represent different chemical compounds that contribute to our changing climate.

The artwork provides a counterpoint to the ordered beauty of the palace garden and warns that climate change represents a real and present danger.

The main building at Het Loo is closed for renovation and reconstruction until the middle of 2021.
