Creative anamorphosis by Franois Abelanet in PARIS

An anamorphosis is a distorted picture that finds its original aspect ratio and makes sense when viewed from one angle. The artist Franois Abelanet has mastered this modern variation of trompe loeil, which he shows through a new masterpiece of land art which will be on display until July 15th on the steps of City Hall in the center of an ephemeral garden dedicated to urban trees.

With its geometric lines in 3D, the work gives visitors the illusion of a relief and covers 1500 square meters. It measures 100 meters long and requires 1200 square meters of lawn, 300 m of sedum and 650 m3 of straw and sand. About 90 gardeners and technicians were mobilized continuously for five days for the completion of this ephemeral work of art.

This huge contemporary garden questions the link between nature and city, and their difficult coexistence. At the intersection of architecture, decoration and land art, the work Who to believe? shows the marriage between town and nature and between mineral and vegetable. A fleeting image that evokes the urban and the regular planting of trees along the streets.

With Who to believe? Franois Albaret invites the viewer to feel and experience the fundamental place of nature: We live in a world where one intends to discuss the ecologists, scientists, industry I wanted to just focus on the problem of the tree and to invite people to consider the place, the tree, nature and the environment for them. I wish for people to ask the question to themselves and feel how the environment is fundamental.
