A site-specific floating art installation

More than 70 guests came out to celebrate with us this April for an intimate sunset viewing of Euphoria, a site-specific floating art installation by contemporary artist Benedicte Blanc-Fontenille at the historic Vagabond Motel. The exhibition was a presentation of miniature paintings floating in water that mimicked the movements and forms of waterlilies exploring the rudiments of fragility, balance, meditation, movement and rebirth.

“Like waterlilies move at the surface of the water, the works playfully follow the movement of the currents, imperfectly fragile yet balanced. They go underwater and another life begins for them: they fly like stingrays, lay down, rest for a while and go back dancing.” — Blanc-Fontenille
