Paris, France — Poppies. Their recorded history dates back to 2700 B.C. when they were cultivated in the Mediterranean region for their medicinal and recreational use. They have been found in Egyptian tombs and Greek mythology in which the poppy flower is associated with Morpheus, the god of sleep and dreams. Sleep, and poppies, immortalized on film in the Wizard of Oz when the protagonists fall into a deep sleep while crossing a field of poppies. Today you can enjoy a unique meeting with poppies at the Galerie Ephémère 37.2 in Paris which is showcasing the intriguing and highly detailed photographs of Inès Dieleman in an exhibition entitled Pavot, the French word for poppy.
The Polaroid photographs endow the flowers with a silky look. The photographs are essentially close-ups onto the flower’s petals, stamens and stalks. The result is a magical look into the flower’s vulnerability. And beauty. The photographs are also the object of a book also entitled Pavot and published by the house of 37.2. The exhibition is running through March 31st at the Galerie Ephémère 37.2. Special to The Gourmet Gazette. https://www.37-2paris.com/home. https://www.inesdieleman.com/
