Visual artist Gaëlle Villedary’s installation in the French village of Jaujac is soft underfoot. Using 1377 ft. of lush green grass, Villedary created a pathway that connects the village to itself. Described as a “piece of nature designed to create a communion between nature and man through art,” the path runs up inclines, curves along and over stairs, along the tiny roadway, even under the bent, split roots of an old tree. Despite its name, Tapis Rouge (Red Carpet), the softness of the lawn is irresistible to those moving on foot and rather harkens the sentiments an organic Yellow Brick Road whose end is undefined, where the possibilities of adventure are limitless.
“Between drawings and installations, quality materials and salvaged ones, the hybrid work is always a product of the life form and its future prospects.”
