12. DISSECTION DU JARDIN D’EDEN
An imaginary Paradise, a celestial landscape, a Garden of Eden. During their lifetimes, humans most often think of choosing the path that will lead them into the Garden of Eden. They try to remain upright, and virtuous, slaloming between the numerous tempting sins that the world offers them.
Andréa Cloche is from Lyon; her birth town heavily influenced the formation of her vision of the landscape. Her early interest for plant life and the landscape developed gradually throughout her career: throughout her STAV baccalaureate, her Landscape Planning BTS and her many work experiences, before becoming a reality at the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage de Versailles.
Agnès Jacquin, the native of the group, has travelled all over France developing a career leaning towards an artistic approach. After studying at the Lycée des Arts Appliqués d’Orléans she carried on in the field of the arts at La Matinière Diderot de Lyon college. Today she puts pencil to paper at the École Nationale Supérieur de Paysage de Versailles where all of her disciplines come together.
Rémi Seris, the second member of the group native to Lyon, is passionate about mountains, which led him to study a landscape planning BTS. Before enrolling at the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage de Versailles, he gained varied experience, between preparatory classes in Antibes, travelling and working in a landscaping company.
Andreas Blanchardon, who is passionate about botany, comes from Oise. His background, between biology and landscape planning, led him to study at the École du Breuil and the Faculté d’Orsay where he got a professional degree in Environmental Management of Urban Plant Landscape, which enabled him to work at the Paris City Hall Green Spaces and Environment Department. His enrolment at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paysage de Versailles enabled him to combine landscaping and botany.
