PROJET #1096 VERSAILLES

JADE RIVERA - 2019

"Flora" - Jade Rivera

With "Flora", Jade Rivera proposes to abandon himself to the discovery of a new world. It highlights the thirst for learning embodied by the almost mystical interaction between the young man and the botanical work that stands before him, a nod to the botanist Bernard de Jussieu. The galactic elements that cover the arms of the character are another metaphor for the discovery of a new "universe". As for the other representations, the artist much prefers to let the spectator see his own interpretation.

Using acrylic paint, the artist had realized his monumental fresco in 8 days.

Constructed in the 1960s, the Bernard de Jussieu neighborhood has had its housing estate renovated by a group orchestrated by Eiffage Construction (IthaquesVincent Lavergne Architecture & Urbanisme and BETOM Ingénierie), in collaboration with the landlord Versailles Habitat and the city of Versailles. This thermal rehabilitation programme's aim is to improve the daily life of its inhabitants.

Associated with this renovation, Quai 36 signs the artistic direction of project #1096 (in reference to the 1096 housings). Ten French and international mural artists invest the facade of a building, i.e. ten monumental frescoes each measuring about 200 m² revealed to the eyes of the residents over a period of one year.
