Fasten your seatbelts: you’ve arrived at Niki de Saint Phalle’s TAROT GARDEN ! How does one make a Mannerist Garden? Hmmm. Emphasize Feeling over Formality, but practice Fine Craftsmanship. Be aware of History, but give equal credence to your Personal Mythology. Accept that Life is Precarious and Mysterious Event. Toss in a fistful of Exaggeration, and a dash of Fear. Add plenty of Unions of Opposites, along with a pinch of Eroticism. Find ways to express all of the above ideas in physical form, and now you’ve got the makings of your own, Mannerist Garden! Not so simple as you first thought, is it?
