Overgrow: Lush and verdant vines spill down from above, adorned with a variety of insect life.
For the Gobelin Room in Schloss Hollenegg, Charlap Hyman & Herrero has created a printed mural from hand-painted artworks to clad the ceiling and one formerly blank wall. The wallpaper depicts the lush and verdant vines that spill down from covered walkways, staircases, and towers around the castle, teaming with a variety of insect life. By bringing this defining feature of the facade indoors, CHH distorts the distinction between the decorated interior and the wilderness beyond, while referencing the presence of historical landscape wallpaper throughout the castle. The mural, installed amongst the furnishings of a stately bedroom and large tapestries from the 17th century, teeters between a romantic suggestion of man’s poetic relationship with nature and an ominous reminder that all buildings will become ruins eventually, overtaken by the untameable.
COLOURWAYS: Alice (verdant vines cascading on bright walls), Franz (soft and light; expansively peaceful), Cosimo (the leaves are about to fall, rustling in the crisp air), Emilia (an enclosure of vines; the night sky beyond), Giulia (classical and pure as if shrouded in mist), & Alfred (an enveloping warmth, timeless and serene).
