Eden By Claire Luxton x Forum des Halles
We are very proud to have launched the public art project “Eden” – one of the first living and evolving artworks dealing with nature by artist Claire Luxton next to the Centre Pompidou. Phase one, revealed today, is the beginning of the work. This beginning will be small by design, as in nature nothing blooms overnight.
Phase two will be an evolution of the existing work that will complete what has already been done and will arrive within a month. The idea is not only to represent nature but also to imitate it and respect its rhythm. Like a luxuriant flora and a botanical lagoon that takes shape, this work takes time and under the summer sun, under the Canopée des Halles, this work will grow. We will have to keep an eye on it to observe its evolution.
In this following phase, we will recover the beginning which starts under the staircase by joining the first part of the work, the empty spaces will be completed and the work will be shown on the walls on each side like a luxuriance, a fauna and a flora slowly taking over the Canopée.
