Boudoir phylloplasties

The Phylloplasties project presented at the Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire grew out of a reflection on botanical greenhouses, which the artist sees as the embodiment of our desire to control nature. Plants discovered in primary forests by the great explorers of the 18th century were brought back to France and preserved in artificial glass microcosms. One could almost imagine that these plants or their descendants are still the specimens that are carefully preserved today as soon-to-be-vanished witnesses of the former virgin territories.
It was the image of nature made artificial that was the starting point for the film Acclimatation, and for the series of transformed plants.

Arranged in the living rooms, library and dining room of the Princesse de Broglie, Karine Bonneval's Phylloplasties are highly original extensions of plants: buttons, feathers, pearls and other materials seem to grow on the plants.
