British artists Heather Ackroyd & Dan Harvey recently transformed a landmark church in South East London by completely covering its interior in a layer of living grass. Known as Dilston Grove, the church-come-art-gallery in Southwark Park, now features a lush green interior that will continue to grow as time goes on.
The grassy wallpaper is the result of covering the ex-church’s interiors with seeds mixed in clay. The duo plastered the walls, balconies and ceilings with the mixture, and nature finished the work with the help of natural light and fresh water from a hose. The piece is perplexingly beautiful, creating a delicate contrast between growth and decay.
