The path to eroticism is seeking its place here. An intriguing and subtle space for introspection.
This garden invites visitors to enjoy its colours and savour the sweet caress of its textures. Silk, flowers and fruit, sharing an intense red, form the backdrop to a space where instincts also have their place, in the most intimate part of our beings.
Eroticism is approached as a journey in search of pleasure, a coming-together with the environment, a sharp awakening of the senses. An awareness of transparency is expressed through a soft grid made of ribbons. A subtly suggested path, a suggestion of the next space stands in contrast to the usual harshness of direct display.
After walking among evocative flowers and ornamental combinations, the visitor reaches the end of the tour, an intimate, social space, with a palpable connection to the outside. The homogeneous plants, fabric partitions and the security of feeling hidden from outsiders looking in make this a serene space, a special place to rest, concealed behind a wall of red plants.
The intensity of fullness, the calm of emptiness.
