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.
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.
