Floral fixation: blooming Belgian statues

Belgian artist Geoffroy Mottart’s flowery creations illuminate the forgotten corners of Brussels’s public parks. Frustrated with working in a flower shop, Mottart decided to use his floristry skills in a different context: decorating antique busts across the Belgian capital with unique floral hairstyles and beards. “Most people pass by these statues without paying attention to them,” he explains. “By placing a floral touch in spaces or on objects, spectators pay attention to my work and they rediscover what is around it.” The arrangements don’t stay up for more than a week, and he reassures those who worry he will vandalise the sculptures: “My aim is to celebrate them, not to destroy them.”
