POISON GARDEN AT TROPICAL SPICE GARDEN
A RECENT, ALLURING ADDITION to Tropical Spice Garden in Teluk Bahang, Poison Garden sees a threeway relationship between nature, education and contemporary art. Designed by Lithuanian designer Tauras Stalnionis, garden curator Kenneth Khoo and illustration studio La Compagnie du Champagne, the garden houses 38 types of poisonous plants and is reminiscent of an art gallery – artsy, abstract signs shed light on each plant’s uses and dangers with condensed notes in five different languages: Mandarin, Malay, English, Tamil and Arabic.
