Altuglas® at Versailles
"Perspectives landscape" is an exhibition of contemporary artists in the Parc Balbi, one of which made in Altuglas®.
Altuglas International has provided the art-work "Mechanical Fields" by Vincent Leroy for a few months. The art-work was acquired in 2005. The 1500 giant grasses (1.50m height) are designed in Altuglas® Transparent green Fluo. Together, they form an artificial field of 1000 m², lawn adorned with giant grasses waving gently in the wind.
Vincent Leroy creates a "diversion" to provide a contemporary view of the garden - the garden through French revisited "Mechanical fields." This is an installation made of contrast: the alignment Le Nôtre but with a plant contemporary. It’s the transformation of a material in a poetic manner.
The work and the creations of other artists for this event "Land Art" is visible from April 18th to July 8, 2013, Parc Balbi - Versailles. The park is open to the public.
