7 Of The Coolest Art Installations You Will Ever See

It is true that art can be depicted in a number of different ways, and what one person sees in a piece of art is often different than what someone else sees. The great thing is that it allows you to create your own story, to draw your own conclusions and to put your own meaning to it. Art often depicts life and when you have a life filled with ups and downs and everything in between, the work that results from that can be truly mind blowing. Here are 7 impressive art installations that will stretch your imagination.



7. Head On – Cai Guo-Qiang


In 2006, Cai Guo-Qiang’s dramatic installation featured 99 life-sized stuffed wolves inside a glass wall. The artist was inspired by Berlin and its history, but according to Cai he really wanted to “portray the universal human tragedy resulting from this blind urge to press forward, the way we try to attain our goals without compromise.”


6. In Silence – Chiharu Shiota
Chiharu’s exhibition in 2008 was meant to evoke the artist’s own personal childhood traumas. The installation featured a dense web of black thread encasing old chairs and a burnt piano.


5. Humus – Giuseppe Licari
In 2012, Sicilian artist Giuseppe Licari showcased a variety of prickly tree roots hanging from the ceiling like organic chandeliers.

He titled the work ‘humus,’ which refers to the soil layer that is needed for the growth of trees. The installation was meant to portray the underbelly of a forest.


4. Melting Man – Nele Azevedo
in 2009 artist Nele Azevedo, in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), showcased the ‘melting man’ in an effort to highlight the effects of global warming,

The artwork featured 1000 ice sculptures of men sitting on public steps in Berlin while literally melting away in the sun. The work spotlighted the WWF’s warning that the warming of the Arctic will change the weather in different parts of the world and will increase the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.


3. Stick-to-it-ive-ness – Richard Morse
Artist Richard Morse used this visual representation of horses running through a river to symbolize the struggles and perseverance, along with the grace and powerful attitude that everybody needs in difficult situations.

Allowing his own life to depict his art, after battling stage-4 cancer, the artist used fallen branches to illustrate the struggle that horse’s must face, as they step into the unknown, under the water’s surface.


2. Garden Towers – Tadashi Kawamata
In 2013, Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata created a unique art installation titled ‘Garden Towers’ in the front yard of the Metropolitan United Church, in Toronto.

The chaotic arrangement of hundreds of wooden chairs, benches and garden furniture were stacked on top of each other to form an amphitheater.

According to Tadashi “viewers are meant to ponder how art made up of inanimate objects can call up memories and traces of people who once used them.”


1. Heritage – Cai Guo-Qiang
In 2013 Cai Guo Giang channeled his fascination with animals into an amazing piece of artwork titled ‘heritage,’ which was inspired by his trip to Australia in 2011.

The humongous installation used textures, colors, light and reflection to create what some deemed an ‘animal heaven.’

Heritage featured 99 replicas of animals from around the world simultaneously drinking from a lake surrounded by pristine white sands.
