LA HAIE D’HONNEUR
Jardins de l'Europe
Bob Verschueren will plant 10 trees with scorched trunks, roots in the air, 5 to a side along an alley in the Jardins de l’Europe. Attaching the trees together at the roots to form a canopy, the artist transforms dead trees from Annecy’s forests into a work of art in homage to the public, which is invited to walk through the installation.
Bob Verschueren, born in 1945 is an internationally recognised contemporary Belgian artist. Today, more than 350 of his in-situ installations can be seen throughout Europe and beyond.
