Contemporary society subjects us to multicoloured stimulations on a daily basis. Television, images and advertising project an endless amount of colours difficult to escape and which unsettle or delude us.
The garden creates an atmosphere of visual and sensory rest, a monochrome place where visual and olfactory synaesthesia is achieved through the pure, simple, naive white flowers and their spellbinding fragrance. Inside unfolds a winding pergola, a sort of modern horn of plenty, of mixed fragrances and sensations covered in climbing plants. In the shade of the pergola we find ourselves in a cosy atmosphere cut off from the world where we can hide away and reflect, surrounded by heady scents.
In addition to the visual and olfactory synaesthesia, a tactile sensation is produced by the shadow and even, for the bravest visitors, by the rose thorns. Stepping from shadow into the light, from black to white, from night to day, a brief internal journey that leads towards the light to rediscover the beauty of the simplicity and purity of colours symbolises the triumph of the white flowers and their age-old fragrance.
“The aroma of white shines where the sun’s rays have gone”.
