Until early November, 37 artists – 14 sculptors and 23 photographers – of the Monegasque National Committee of the International Association of Plastic Arts at UNESCO are exhibiting their works to the Jardin Exotique as part of the ninth edition of the “When the sculptures bloom …”

The opening ceremony on September 7 was attended by Mayor George Marsan, local elected representatives André J. Campana, Deputy Mayor and delegate to the Jardin Exotique, Henri Doria and Claude Bollati, Minister of the Interior Minister Patrice Cellario, representing HE Minister of State Serge Telle, and National Councillor Eric Elena.

All guests were able to discover the sculptures arranged in the open air in the upper part of the garden, as well as the work of the photographers inside the Louis Vatrican greenhouse.

Like last year, a competition was organised to distinguish the work of an artist-sculptor and that of an artist-photographer. A first jury composed of Françoise Gamerdinger, Deputy Mayor for Culture, André J. Campana and Isabelle Lombardot, Director of the Higher School of Sculpture-Pavillon Bosio, awarded the Mayor’s Prize to Hervé Nys for his sculpture Cartus.

For photography, Karine Tomaselli won the Director’s Award for the Jardin Exotique, nominated by a second jury composed of two professional photographers, Gaëtan Luci and Adrien Rebaudo, and Jean Marie Solichon, Garden Director.

Until November 5, the exhibition is accessible with a ticket to the Jardin Exotique, and allows the public to combine an artistic discovery and a botanical visit of this unique place entirely devoted to succulent plants with a panoramic view of the Principality.
