SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATION + COCKTAIL RECEPTION
April 8, 5-8PM
The Vagabond Hotel
7301 Biscayne Boulevard
Miami, Florida 33138
Gather at sunset for an intimate viewing of Euphoria, a site-specific floating art installation by contemporary artist Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille at the historic Vagabond Hotel. Exploring the rudiments of fragility, balance, meditation, movement and rebirth, Euphoria is a presentation of miniature paintings floating in water that mimic the movements and forms of waterlilies.
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. — Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille
Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille is a french artist living and working in Miami. She draws her inspiration from a reflection on the fragility of the human being and its cultures.
