Various Artists The guests interpreted the floral motifs in a very diversified way.
Martin Bethenod aims to introduce the viewer to the various deeper themes flowers hold, such as vanity, politics and grief. Pieces include Moroccan born artist, Latifa Echakhch’s sculpture ‘Fantome’ (2012). Beyond the visual beauty of the jasmine flower necklaces, the artist uses flora to highlight a political metaphor. Linked to her memory of a travelling jasmine salesman covering his flowers with a shirt to protect their scent and freshness, she evokes the revolutions of the Arab Spring and resistance to chaos through this fragile installation.
