ça pousse! (it's growing!)

So amazing to see the sculptures growing as the days go by. From what initially just soil to seeing the seeds budding and finally the grass growing out. The stunning sculptures by Mathilde Roussel Giraudy.

Exhibited at the 2010 Crossing the Line FIAF Festival at Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn, NY and at the French Institute Alliance Française FGH Theater hall, NY and at Brooklyn Utopias: Farm City at The Old Stone House Gallery, Brooklyn, NY.

The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it's origin, it's transport, has an impact on us beyond it's taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world - of abundance, of famine - and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.
