A PARTY FOR ALL OF YOUR SENSES
In the Floralies Hall creative designers and landscape architects demonstrate their craftsmanship. Take a stroll through the show gardens and inspirational gardens and be tempted by the Flower Power installations in the Museum of Fine Arts and still lives from the Museum's collection.
EYECATCHER | FLORALIES HALL COVERED IN GREEN AGAIN AFTER 30 YEARS
The concept for the AVBS group stand in the Floralies Hall was designed by the architectural team of Inge De Bruycker, Denis Dujardin and Geert Pattyn. The stand will be a flowing “landscape” instead of a “hodgepodge” of individual floral stunts.
The Ghent Azalea will continue to hold a starring role, but the focus will be on the context in which azaleas can be combined with other plants. This approach ties in with what is going on within the contemporary green experience. Frugality with a strong, simplistic design language is the motto, and colour compatibility comes in at second place. The entire landscape of the AVBS group stand will consist of different themed colour chambers or colour zones. Green and flowering houseplants, garden plants, annuals, cut flowers and more are brought together and combined into a single, massive landscape sculpture.

Metafloristic - Monumental art installation in the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK)
This artistic duo is letting an installation grow within the central hemicycle of the MSK using materials that they gathered in Ghent (from the botanical gardens, parks, local growers) and with materials from their own collections (parts of plants, artificial plants, curiosities). The artists are looking forward to filling this space with delicate and exuberant flora. Stroll under the installation, lay down on one of the beds and lose yourself in the details.
