Art: opening of the ArtGraine exhibition
An exhibition entitled "ArtGraine", by Séverine Cadier, sculptor and ceramicist, is on display at the Exotic Garden. This collection of thirty works consists of larger-than-life seeds, between five and twenty times their actual size. The aim is to raise awareness of ecology and the major role that seeds play in biodiversity. These ceramic works are scattered in the garden's flowerbeds and greenhouse, and invite the visitor to reflect. Using a moulding technique, the artist highlights plant embryos with different characteristics and means of dispersion. There are also larger-than-life seeds based on plants in the Exotic Garden.
