As part of a reflection on the conservation of artistic heritage and the relationship to time, the New National Museum of Monaco welcomes artist Michel Blazy to Villa Sauber.
Born in Monaco, Michel Blazy has earned an international reputation thanks to his installations integrating living materials.
Three living works of the 51-year-old will be exhibited until March 18, 2018 at 17 avenue Princesse Grace.
Co-produced by the NMNM and the Government’s Cultural Affairs Department for the last edition of the Venice Biennale, Blazy’s Shoe Collection is a presentation of worn shoes, which serve to pot plants. A luminous frame encircles the sculpture and an irrigation process allows the plants to grow.
Soft Nature, which was acquired by the NMNM in 2009, consists of vegetables and fruit stuck with flake glue on a tablecloth made of the same material. The work invites the public to follow the slow transformation and disappearance of components, like agar dishes.
The third piece, the NMNM Collection’s Skin Animal, is made from cotton layered with chocolate dessert cream.
Villa Sauber is open daily 10am-6pm. Admission: €6
