L-A: Narrow escape

For Niki de Saint Phalle, her art was an escape. Before she left, she left us the testimony of her life of narrow escapes, which culminated in her Tarot Garden right here in lower Tuscany.

Today there won’t be many words. Niki’s Giardino dei tarocchi is full of narrow passages, entrances, pathways and peeks. Do yourself a favour and visit, as we did twenty days ago and many times before, since it’s fifteen minutes away. The day was murky, the sky covered, people stayed away, and Niki’s monumental structures were there almost only for us. Welcome!

  1. I had no idea who Nikki de Saint Phalke was till I saw this post and I’m left speechless. I don’t even know where to begin from- the colours , the sculptures all came together in a crazy manner and I can only imagine how fabulous it must have been to see it all in person. Awesome post Manja!

    1. Thank you so much, sheetalbravon. Your comment made me smile because it’s energetic and your energy travels well. This garden is 15 minutes from my home and I visit whenever I can. Her name is Niki de Saint Phalle and it’s worth to search out her life story which is amazing and devastating too. Her art was her survival. Always welcome back to my blog.
