Marseille 2017 Capital of Sport

Sport and kites

Capitale Europeenne du sport 2017 - Sport céleste

Celestial sport was the subject of the thirty second edition of the Marseille wind festival. For this event or gathering artists and acrobats of the family of the kite of the whole world, a free contest of aerial ballet was organized. Among the pilots of the various usual categories (2 lines and 4 lines: individual, pair and team), I presented in music, an original ballet with my acrobatic single-wire kite, the Switch. Out of twenty participants, it is a very honorable fourth place that rewards my ballet just behind the best pilots world in 4 lines that occupy the first three places. It is therefore possible to perform an aerial dance and to infuse emotions with a single-wire kite in comparison with the performance of very technical gear.

Des Coquelicots sur le Prado

Under a radiant sun and a light morning wind, I installed a Bouquet of Poppies on the sand of Prado de Marseille. The wonder of the children was immediately translated by their invasion of the bouquet of giant flowers.

Un aquarium géant

It was in a steady wind that I realized an unusual arrangement of the O Arches. In association with Eolia Concept and its giant marine creatures, I installed all the O’s around the blue octopus creating an unlikely aquatic atmosphere.

“Day at the Garden” at the Logis de la Chabotterie

Between sky and flowers, a day of entertainment in the heart of the Vendée

Welcomed by the Logis de la Chabotterie on this wonderful day of Sunday, June 11th, 2017, it was during the Garden Day that a bouquet of 29 Poppies grew in the meadow of the Logis.
It is therefore accompanied by Lilou and Pierre that we installed the largest version of the Hanging Poppy Bouquet for the first time.
On the ground near the entrance of the site, we also flying the Arches of O in conditions of weak but sufficient wind to sculpt a few elegant lines in the sky of the Logis, thus welcoming the public at the beginning of its visit.

The Logis de la Chabotterie is exalted

In this magnificent place dedicated to the culture, some “Meilleurs Ouvriers de France”, and Vendée, also decorated the estate with beautiful floral compositions.

The Vegetable Garden also surprised by its vegetable fantasy led by “Madame Salsifis” and “John Topinambour”.  Madame de la Fontenelle also made a spectacle of her bucolic poetry by presenting Le Soin des Plantes in the 18th century. A culinary animation,  A Tasting Bouquet, was presented by Chef Arnaud Acher.  A discovery of the hives of the house was also on the agenda.  A sculptor of balloons also marveled at small and large by his amazing floral creations.
This day was rich in discoveries and shared pleasures in the sumptuous setting of the Logis de La Chabotterie.

Kerguelen in celebration

Day of celebration in Kerguelen

Jour de fete Kerguelen

Sunday, April 23, 2017, I participated in Feast day in Kerguelen with Bertrand Lefebvhre of the company Eko-Kite(www.ekokite.com). This wonderful and convivial family day was organized by Sellor Nautisme at the Kerguelen nautical center in Larmor-Plage in Morbihan.

So it was with great pleasure the occasion for me to realize a decoration of this site. I have arranged several Hanging Poppy Bouquets and also flies an original installation of the O Arches. Thus, these compositions have brought a dreamlike atmosphere in this place for this particular event.

Kite and Wind Festival of Châtelaillon-Plage

Fête du cerf-volant et du vent de Chatelaillon

Twilight Flight at the Kite Party

For the 24th edition of the Kite and Wind Festival, at the hour when the sun sets on the horizon and the light fades above the waves, empty space giving way to the spectacle of the setting sun. The organization of the festival gave me carte blanche to sublimate this particular moment of the day. In front of the casino Châtelaillon-Plage, I made this crepuscular flight by installing the Arches d’O, along with Jean-Paul Richon and his installation of sparkling ribbons Purple Rain.

RICV meetings in Berck sur Mer

One-day time for RICV

RICV Berck sur Mer 2017

During a short visit to the 31st RICV of Berck sur Mer, I found a place of honor and ideal conditions for installing my Arches of O above the large banner wall of Eolia-Concept. In this way, a scenic decoration of the main demonstration ground of this great event is realized.

A party in Port des Barques 2016

Another great day of flight to Port des Barques

The commune of Port des Barques welcomed me on the banks of the Charente for a day of installation. It is therefore under the Charentais sun that the wind has risen again, faithful to the rendezvous.
