Woman in a Greenhouse, Denmark..

I-Drivhuset

Artist Susanne Ussing (1940–1998) was a Danish visual artist and architect who worked in a variety of different mediums from photography and ceramics to large-scale installations and sensory exhibitions.
One of her most impactful pieces was this 1980 installation titled I Drivhuset (In the Greenhouse) that was installed at the Ordrupgaard Museum in Copenhagen.
The sculpture depicts a female figure who has seemingly grown too large for (or has become trapped by) a very tall glass greenhouse.
Constructed from newspaper clippings, wood, and metal chimney vents, the figure is so large that her feet seem to penetrate the brick floor below.
