Artist Fills 13th-Century Monastery With Ethereal Foam Sculptures
Paris-based artist Michel Blazy has created a wonderful kinetic installation—entitled ‘Bouquet Final’—that features the beautiful forms of cascading foam bubbles.
Housed in a Cistercian monastery in Paris that dates back to the 13th century, the unpredictable, free-forming foam “sculptures” drape softly and frothily over unyielding metal scaffolding.
Resembling huge swaths of cotton candy, the fluffy, wet mass of foam is meant to symbolize the fragility of life.
This whimsical installation would no doubt have distracted visitors from the grandeur of the monastery’s gorgeous classic architecture.
