Expo Ecofuturiste: La Pieuvre - Luc Boniface


There is a fascinating exhibition on at the moment in the Casino Gardens. Organised by the Monegasque association, Arty-Ecology, which is presenting works by 35 artists in this beautiful setting. Some are clever, some funny, some serious - all thought provoking. Do come back over the following days to see more and eventually, my own particular favourite - one that stopped me in my tracks.

This work, La Pieuvre (octopus) is by the French artist, Luc Boniface, and is made, as you see of strips of grass and pink rubber gloves.

'Live intensely without leaving any material trace' - Luc Boniface.

It reminds me of the last thing I saw before going under the knife in surgery for an aneurysm.

Pink fingers instead of pink flamingos? Looking forward to some of the other art works:)

... without leaving any trace?" unquote. What about the rubber gloves ?

The pink rubber gloves do give this installation art a burst of color and whimsical touch.
