Vegetable Follies

FOLIES VÉGÉTALES exhibition by Patrick Blanc at the EDF Electra Foundation,
Paris 2007.

Scenography and sculptures by Alexis Tricoire

A stunning atmosphere for this first plant ceiling in modern history.
A thousand plants grow and fall over your head without a drop of water falling to the ground.
Because nature is also a breeding ground for knowledge and hope for science and medicine, fertile torrents bubble up in these Rheophyte Flutes, a sort of giant levitating "test tubes."

Ode to the fragility of our planet, bubbles protect astonishing Begonias Pavoninas whose blue iridescence is revealed by the lighting of integrated LEDS.
Further on, mossy and sculptural silhouettes evoke the tropical and humid lands of the Bay of Along in a peaceful and mysterious atmosphere.
