In accordance with the philosophy of Gaasbeek Castle, the works of great names and up-and-coming talents enter into dialogue with the romantic castle interiors. We meet sleeping figures and poetic daydreamers, but also mysterious shadows and oppressive nightmares. Visitors are immersed in an unreal atmosphere inspired by the blue hour. You find yourself in an intermediate world, floating between day and night, between waking and sleeping.
Bouquets is the new book in Laura Dowling’s inspiring ‘how-to’ series and builds on the premise of her successful first book Floral Diplomacy in the White House (2016), namely the idea that flowers have the power to change the way people think and feel and to create powerful emotional connections – with nature and with others, with our past and with our desires for the future.
