A new monumental artwork has joined the collection of sculptures in the gardens of the Fondation Carmignac. The German artist Cornelia Konrads questions with poetry and humor the relationship between man and nature with dreamlike works that reconcile these two forces.
The artist has transcribed the particularly powerful energy of nature on the island of Porquerolles. Between the olive grove and the vines, Le tourbillon is made up of driftwood gleaned by the artist and teams from the National Park on the coast of the island. Carried by the sea currents around Porquerolles, they now tirelessly continue their flight among the trees.
