A Glass Jungle
The curves, lines and textures that run through In the arboretum reflect the contrast between the lightness and luminosity of Sopheap Pich’s sculptures and the wild, dense, dark environment of the Cambodian jungle, as Violaine Collas imagined it. Soaring spices rouse memories: cardamom, a nod to the Cardamom Mountains in western Cambodia; and Sichuan pepper, whose spicy, zesty facets recall the smell of the mango leaves that shade the artist’s garden. The landscape is also outlined with deep notes of damp earth, warmed by cistus and vanilla absolute. Green and airy, the bamboo accord – a plant the artist uses daily – evokes the sensation of the material when it has just been cut. Images and memories blend, weaving textures: The darker, smokier base notes recall molten glass and the olfactory atmosphere of the Marseille workshop that hosted the last meeting between the artist and the perfume composer.
