A Giant Bouquet of Poppies with Floralies
From 8 to 19 May 2019 took place at the Parc des Expositions de la Beaujoire the 12th International Floralies of Nantes on the theme: Flowers for Life.
The theme “Flowers to live” is inspired by a quote from Montaigne “If life is only a passage, on this passage at least sow flowers”. It is the illustration of the place and the accompaniment of the flowers in the big stages of the life of the Man.
On the central lawn of Exponantes I had the honor to exhibit for the first time a huge meadow of 87 Poppies gathered with all of my Butterflies. Immersed in this field of giant flowers, the walkers found the time of a dream, their child’s soul. In this painting representing the Innocence, more than 300 000 people approached this course including 7 paintings exposed on 45000 m ².
The guest of honor at the Floralies was Naturya, the musical and Floral. Naturya was presented every evening in front of 1700 spectators. During the day the Counts of Naturya were played outside in the meadow of Poppies. It was then a magnificent meeting between a giant decor and an extraordinary history.
