Nature capital Paris Champs Elysees at Night

    Gad Weil, creator and director of street art, who 20 years ago turned the Champs-Elysées into a huge field of corn, will from 23 May (World Biodiversity Day) to 24 May be presenting his new monumental and festive work “Nature Capitale”. It too will be installed on the Champs-Elysées, from the Arc de Triomphe to the rond-point. The avenue will be closed to traffic until the morning of 25 May.
    This ephemeral botanical 3-hectare creation created by Gad Weil and the visual artist and landscape artist Laurence Medioni will, with the help of agricultural and forestry professionals, put the spotlight on “Nature fashioned by Man” but also on the fragile balance between human beings and their environment. 8,000 “fragments” of more than 150 plants and trees will form a huge mosaic — a testimony to biodiversity in France.
