Tell us the story of Bois-Guilbert park…The castle around which the park stretches has belonged to my family since 1620. It was bought by my ancestor Pierre Le Pesant de Boisguilbert, a recognized economist in the time of Louis XIV whose work is still studied today. The adjoining garden had several lives before being transformed into a horse pasture by my father, who was one of the pioneers of pony clubs in France. I myself inherited the estate in 1983 at the age of 21. From the outset, I wanted to replace the family home in a beautiful green setting: I therefore set out very early on to refurbish the park, while following art studies in parallel.
How did you understand this titanic work?
Why did you choose to integrate sculptures in your garden?Sculpture is my second nature, a passion that I have developed since my adolescence! During my 15 years of study in art, in parallel with the landscaping of the gardens, I thought a lot about the symbolism of nature and how to reconcile art and vegetation. My works, but also those of other sculptors, have been integrated into the various plots that make up the garden during its restructuring. Each of them maintains a close relationship with the earth and nature: there is thus a garden dedicated to the cosmos, another dedicated to the goddess of the earth Gaïa, a cloister of the four seasons, the garden of the five continents ... Nothing n 'was done at random, and we undertook a great substantive work to make visitors discover the world of contemporary sculpture still unfairly unknown to the general public.
A sculpture biennial, paying homage to a lost artist, is currently presenting numerous works by contemporary sculptors: More info on www.lejardindessculptures.com
