Sophie Guyot often addresses environmental themes, treated as metaphors for the general state of humanity. She regularly envisions huge spatial ambients that design-wise draw from nature and its habitats, but her frequent use of different industrial materials and artificial lighting introduces different semantic coordinates. Her projects, often monumentally big, thus recall a different perception of nature. The latter one in her work often receives a poetic and flawless substance that charms the spectator and enhances his awareness of the world around him. Her project, hosted in the Botanical garden, presents a sea of flowers, created from recycled plastics and fitted with LED lights, to create an illusion of a luminous meadow. The installation addresses the fragility of nature but at the same time her ability to recover and regenerate as well.
