Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy’s Growing Grass Sculptures


Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy, a French artist living in New York, has used soil, wheat seed, and recycled metal to create ça pousse! (it’s growing!), a collection of “anthropomorphic and organic” sculptures that grow grass. Roussel-Giraudy’s intention with the project is to make us more aware of what we put into our bodies, and how our choices in food affect the world around us. Having grown up in an old farmhouse in the French countryside, she sees nature as having an essential role in our lives. Roussel-Giraudy also has a set of watercolors based on the project with the same name. Click through to see the sculptures, and if you live in New York, check out her work in person at Brooklyn’s Invisible Dog Gallery.
