I was invited to stay at Villa Arnica to capture its special atmosphere through my artistic practice based on the simultaneity of natural elements and everyday objects. The park with the garden as well as the fabulous interiors of the villa are a perfect match for my research. The photographs I have created are therefore closely related to the place, both indoors and outdoors: They are still lifes created by rearranging objects present in the villa as well as plant elements from the park and garden such as branches, leaves and flowers, etc. Surrounded by these majestic mountains, the cultivation of these green spaces created a work of art that is exhibited at Villa Arnica.
