AR Cosmos invited Japanese artist Azuma Makoto to install sculptures of Floral Art in the Central Park of Alameda in Mexico City. He also conducted thematic workshops with local residents. Alameda Park is one of the largest public spaces in the city. It is currently surrounded by monumental vases: two of them are made of marble and eight – bronze.
The first day Makoto installed his sculptures of floral art in the two pots that stand on either side of ‘hemiciclo a juárez’: one is inspired by Mexican culture and the other – by Japanese culture. On the second day the artist conducted a workshop with nearly forty participants divided into eight groups. Each of them has created floral arrangements for the eight bronze vases.
Alameda Park hosted floral art installations
The Alameda Park is a green garden with fountains and decorative statues. In the past, space was an Aztec market. Today the park hosts many cultural events and citizens.
