Fire Garden

A crackling, spitting, after-dark adventure

Compagnie Carabosse disrupt public spaces with flaming artworks that remind us of our most elemental human need. 

With burning metal structures, cascading candles and flickering flowerpots, Fire Garden transformed the front lawn of Tate Modern into a crackling and spitting, after-dark adventure as part of London's Burning. With live music and other intriguing goings-on, audiences were invited to experience fire like never before and remember the blaze that changed London forever.

One of France’s most prominent street art groups, Compagnie Carabosse are a collective comprising of artistic designers, constructors, actors, musicians, technicians, inventors, poets, photographers and visual artists. For almost 20 years they have been working in public spaces throughout Europe and the world. They are driven by the philosophy that public spaces and streets should remain open to everyone and be a place for self expression and freedom.

With thanks to Tate Modern.
