COMPOSITIONS AGRICOLES MIDIYRENEES: COLOMBIES
Région de Toulouse, France
JEAN PAUL GANEM is a France based artist who operates in everyday-use sites, like farming lands, dumping grounds and airports, often introducing elements of profitability such as the harvesting of his crop fields or energy production. He employs extensive geometric plantings of colourful crops involving local farmers and volunteers.
One of Ganem’s most representative works is LES JARDIN DES CAPTEURS, which was made transforming the 247 acre dumping ground into a landscape full of many types and colours of plants. The centers of the circles hide biogas sensors, which capture methane given off by buried human waste, and provide a valuable source of energy.

COMPOSITIONS AGRICOLES MERU’: LIPPENS
My agricultural designs are found where art is least expected… My work revolves around human activity in various landscapes, integrating artistic creation into a production process, to surprise and stimulate the actors and spectators of the landscapes.
All of the technical parameters of the activity on a given landscape are included in the designs […]
My designs are made with plants, therefore, they are constantly changing with time.
