In 2016, the City of Bonifacio engages a partnership with the artist Nicolas Roux Dit Buisson to work on the project Fola Flora. It took the form of a two-year artist residency. This work is a continuation of the concept of “Sublimated Vegetable” which aims to elevate nature to a work of art.

Through this work, which will take the form of a large pavement in the streets of Bonifacio and an exhibition of original works in the Espace Saint-Jacques, he chose to reveal the island’s botanical wealth and its historical link with tales. and Corsican legends.

Flora : A course of kakemonos with colorful flowers will pamper the city with a festive air and will bring visitors from the Navy to the Upper Town to Espace Saint-Jacques.

Fola : informative cartels placed at the base of the images will transmit the myths and legends at the origin of the works.

Respecting the verticality characteristic of the architectural heritage of the city, the kakemonos arranged in height, from time to time, will allow to rediscover its perspectives and to take a new look at its historical buildings.

The Fola Flora project is supported by the CBNC, who wishes to inform Corsica Grana, the Corsican Environment Office and the Corsica Regional Nature Park.
