Perdana Botanical Garden – Art In the Park

GDP’s Perdana Botanical Garden canopy is used and enjoyed as a public space.

Architect Lisa Foo, winner of the Mayor Sculpture Prize 2014 created a giant marionette made of leaves, twigs and branches gathered from the park. A series of ropes and cranks let’s audiences interact and move the puppet for a ‘Walk in the Park’. Art in the Park was held at the Perdana Botanical Gardens, where a series of talks, workshops and art related activities were held. Introduced by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall to promote public art, activities were specially designed for the Perdana Botanical Gardens and the participating spaces surrounding the gardens such as the Islamic Arts Museum and Bank Negara.
