Frances Lansing is an American sculptor who designed the sculptures in the Bosco della ragnaia. They are not sculptures displayed in the garden, but they are really part of it. The music was especially done by Minna Orvokki Nygren, a young composer from Finland.  This is the third film I make on this very special place designed by American artist Sheppard Craige and I hope to do more as it is an amazing garden.

Droulers

Robert Droulers was a painter of the so-called ‘Groupe de Roubaix’ a group of artists famous in northern France in the 1950/60s. In 1963, he left Roubaix for Murs, in the southern region of  Leburon. He was also a sculptor and a designer. He died 20 years ago and his work is being re-discovered nowadays with an exhibition taking place at the Septentrion gallery in Lille, northern France from September 13 to October 12, 2014.  ‘Robert Droulers, the light from north to south’ is a film I made to be screened during the exhibition. It is not about gardens but very much about landscape…

If you pass this weekend by Gaillac, in southwestern France, my film ‘The Bosco della Ragnaia”, a garden by US artist Sheppard Craige, will be screened during the ‘Cinefeuille’ garden film festival on Saturday, May 17 in the evening.

How do you trim hedges to keep your house from the view of passers-by ?
