monsieur plant grows a love of nature in france with installation TREE HUG

botanical artist christophe guinet — known as monsieur plant — installs a ‘human-vegetable’ work entitled TREE HUG in the gardens of europe in annecy, france. the work comprises castings of arms developed together with the local residents of the area. these casts are then ‘vegetated’ and installed around tree trunks, generating a new collection of arboreal pieces. mr. plant explins: ‘currently, the ecological awareness is a big debate, the human must change his habits by respecting his environment more. trees are an invaluable asset that contributes in many ways to balancing the ecosystem in which we live.’

monsieur plant personifies trees with art and poetry, expressive of ‘a man in the tree.’ TREE HUG is a tribute to the benefits of trees, symbolizing life and love of the natural environment. it represents a surrealistic evolution of the human being into a tree — man is absorbed by a nature that has regained its rights. the collection is displayed in two locations: in the gardens of europe in annecy, and among a wooded area on the hill of teppes to the south.
