Take a look at these hauntingly beautiful growing sculptures by Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy, a talented French artist from New York. She calls them Ça pousse! The name is French for, it's growing.
Growing is exactly what these sculptures are doing. Made of recycled metal, covered in soil and wheat seed, Roussel-Giraudy's sculptures come to life in a unique way. Wheat grass grows from every part of their human-like bodies. " Roussel-Giraudy's intention with the project is to make us more aware of what we put into our bodies, and how our choices in food affect the world around us" (Flavorwire).
Ça pousse! has been on exhibition in Brooklyn's Invisible Dog Gallery as well as at the French Institute Alliance Française FGH Theater hall and also at the Brooklyn Utopias: Farm City at The Old Stone House Gallery, Brooklyn, NY.
