2013 Année Le Nôtre : land art au Parc Balbi I

As part of Le Nôtre year, land art has been installed in parc Balbi. This very green 'mecanic field' is by Vincent Leroy. Though there were little signs forbidding entrance, naturally madame had to walk into the field so that monsieur could immortalise the moment...

Dans le cadre de l'année Le Nôtre, du land art a été installé au parc Balbi. Voici "champs mécaniques" de Vincent Leroy. Bien qu'il y ait des petits panneaux en interdisant l'accès, naturellement madame n'a pas pu s'empêcher d'y entrer pour que monsieur puisse l'immortaliser...

Of course. I can imagine VP's fuming. He doesn't like contemporary art at all.

Some ppl live to break the rules.

There is a tension between the real grass and the "mechanical" version. I think the machines are winning.

Une pelouse que l'on n'a pas besoin de tondre, c'est l'idéal !

J'aime bien le LAnd art , c'est souvent festif et funky. Mais je me demande ce qu'en penserait Lenotre?..
ps1:plus d'enfants dans la rivière, trop "dangereux", grilles à tous les accès.
ps2: tu émerges, tu surmontes?

It looks quite spectacular, almost neon!

What a great link Ciel, he has created some amazing pieces. Did you see on his 'gallery' site, second page..a sculpture very much like my 'Florence' n'est pas!

Are these things metallic. It's an interesting concept, but I'd prefer real flora.

And I'm glad that you've learned that some signs can be disobeyed with alacrity!

Perhaps they are tourists and can't read? ;)

Lowell said...

Hi again, Ciel: Re your comment - It's only about 7 hours via plane to Tampa International Airport! :)

Sign? What sign?
Very vibrant color and I like the contrast between the natural and the mechanical.

I think it is very GREEN and some lines need to be crossed at some times. Good for you!!!

BTW": What is the 'Scottish' girl saying? MB

Of course someone had to walk in the field! This is really cool - I like the color and structure.

Very nice picture! I wonder what Le Nôtre would think of this...

Loree said...

Oh dear, don't you just hate it when people break the rules? It makes me mad.

I love the bright green color which reminds me of new plant growth backlit by the morning sun.

Dina said...

Wow. Your city is really going green.
