Outdoor Sculptures - Jardins du Chateau
de Bois-Guilbert, Normandy, France
by sculptor Laury Dizengremel

On this page, one of three outdoor sculptures displayed 21 June to 21 September 2003 in a summer exhibition of sculpture in the sculpture park surrounding a small Chateau in Normandy, called Jardins de Bois Guilbert.

This was a temporary garden sculpture entitled "Confidences" - which started as a tribute to my sister Maguite. I actually used two busts that had recently been commissioned by a couple in Bristol of their daughters, and for the bodies used my own two teenage daughters, their bodies patiently covered in jute scrim loaded with reinforced plaster. The inspiration? An old metal bed I found in a farm dump in Sussex, those special moments shared with my sister, who is also my friend and confidante, and indeed special moments shared with my closest girl friends through the years of my life.

Jean-Marc de Pas, the Chateau's owner and a fellow sculptor, cleverly landscaped several "chambres vegetales" (garden rooms), and I used one of them for this sculpture as it was an ideally intimate setting for my sculpture within the gardens.

Note: In the same exhibition at Jardins de Bois-Guilbert, there was also my "Dreamcatcher Tribe", and an installation of masks in a lovely tree by a pond entitled "Spirits of the Tree".
