Mirage presents: Vitrine Blanche #19 // Jardin Éternel by Anaëlle Blayo
Curator: Honorine Blanche Bergé
Jardin Éternel (Endless garden)
This project comes from the story of a woman named Augustine. This old lady has been living for thirty years in a little town in France. This place was her backdrop, especially her garden. Since she left her beloved house, the thing she is missing the most is to look through the window to see her garden. The purpose of Jardin Éternel is to bring the garden back inside the house
Design: net curtain 100% cotton, silkscreen printing with naturals pigments, original drawing
Empreinte Végétale (Vegetal skin-print)
Here, tattooing is a way to symbolically heal bodies and minds damaged by diseases. Resulting from researches on medicinal plants and flowers with beneficial properties, the project proposes a series of minimalistic-outlines tattoos available during the Vernissage
Single price: 50€/tattoo
