Monsieur Plant, 2021
Currently, ecological awareness is a big debate, the human must change his habits by respecting his environment more. Trees are an invaluable asset that contribute in many ways to balancing the ecosystem in which we live.Monsieur Plant
Botanical artist Christophe Guinet, known as Monsieur Plant, personifies trees with art and poetry. Tree Hug is a tribute to the benefits of trees, symbolizing life and love of the natural environment. it represents a surrealistic evolution of the human being into a tree — man is absorbed by a nature that has regained its rights.
‘Tree Hug’ is a series of 5 x sets of cast arms that are ‘vegetated’ with moss and installed around a group of trees encouraging the visitors to hug a tree and reconnect with the natural environment around them.
