Palm tree among sand hills

La Saison des Fêtes by Pierre Huyghe consists of a circular garden set in a landscape of sand hills. In the garden everything revolves around plants, which relate to festivals from all over the world. There are around 45 species of plants; annuals and perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees, with an eye-catching palm tree among the sand hills. With the flowering of the various plants, the festivals, seasons and months of the years become topical time and again.

Self-generating

The work of Pierre Huyghe assumes very different forms: from objects, photographs, drawings, films and music to living organisms. La Saison des Fêtes is a self-generating system, for which the artist provided the impetus, but which then continues to develop.
