FLOWER POWER: Galeries Lafayette is hosting a show featuring art by Kris Van Assche and by Matt Saunders. Called “Picaflor” (Spanish for hummingbird).

 

The exhibition includes 12 mirrored, metallic flowers by Van Assche, which perch atop tripods of various heights. People are meant to move up close to sneak a peek (or whiff) of what’s inside.

 

Most of the flowers contain images, either moving or still, black-and-white or color, and including many fashion-related shots – among other subject matter. One flower emits a fragrance concocted by perfumer François Demachy.

 

Also part of the show is 22 portraits by Saunders, who made a film of them that plays outside the gallery space. “Picaflor” runs through Feb. 27.
