The garden, named D'un rêve à l'autre, is inspired by the surrealist artists like Salvador Dali, René Magritte, and poet André Breton.
The garden, named D'un rêve à l'autre, is inspired by the surrealist artists like Salvador Dali, René Magritte, and poet André Breton. They usually use ordinary objects in an unusual context, giving new meaning to familiar things in order to create poetic imagery and evoke mystery. In the garden, several pink doors would be erected in the beautiful location of Côte d’Azur. Its absurdity with landscape could create a poetic and artistic touch for the festival, opening the doors like from one dream to another.
Dry Mediterranean landscape techniques would be used in response to the location of beautiful Côte d’Azur. Local plants would be used to adapt local climate, thereby minimising water use and maintenance, whilst at the same time celebrating local flora.
For the visitors, they could open and close the doors when they walk through the garden. The interaction with people would be the attraction to the festival, that draw more attention and people to enjoy.
