Phytomorphism

From March 16th till April 23rd 2021 Agrocampus Tours Fondettes, nursery greenhouse open to the public
Phytomorphism

A series of pieces and photos produced in February 2021, during a week-long workshop with the "horticulture terminale" class and their teacher Anne Petit.

To counter the anthropomorphism that is sometimes present in the discourse on plants, the starting point is simple:
The students took a photo of a plant of their choice and tried to reproduce its architecture with their bodies.
Karine Bonneval took pictures of them, alone or in groups, in one of the school's horticultural greenhouses.

From these photos, they then imagined a supporting structure that could synthesise the form of this attempt, using wood, metal and paper-mâché-soil. A potentially practicable sculpture, allowing the public to project themselves into the plant form for a time.

The photographs of the botanical and human duos were printed on flag cloth and hung in one of the horticultural greenhouses of the campus nursery, in dialogue with the sculptures.
