Carsten Höller: Upside-Down Mushroom Room at Fondazione Prada, Milan, Italy.

On view starting April 20, 2018.

Carsten Höller has re-created the Upside-Down Mushroom Room for the opening of Fondazione Prada’s OMA-designed building. Originally trained as a scientist with a doctorate in biology, Höller is inspired by research experiments and by the world around him. Mushrooms have regularly featured in his work since 1994; in this case, the red-and-white agaric fungi are gigantic and hangs upside down from the ceiling.
