"The Sage Temple" Orticolario 2018 by OLO creative farm

At the “Journées des Plantes de Chantilly”, the most important nursery-gardening event in France, Orticolario presents the installation “The Sage Temple”, a project by OLO creative farm.

A temple to celebrate the sacredness of Sage, a magical, purifying and divinatory plant.
The playful confrontation with oneself purifies, the vertical gardens uplift the senses with their perfumes and meditation in listening to the voices of the sages is reflected in our relationship with nature.
Protected by invisible walls, hidden from prying and profane eyes, the oracle in the center of the temple will accompany the traveler in an infinite vortex towards the center of the Earth.

Sages, the guardian deities of the temple

Officinalis. The mother of all Sages.
Purpurea. With brown leaves. The most aromatic sage.
Tricolor. With rose-white and green leaves. The most contemporary sage.
Icterina. With rough and corporeal leaves. A sweet and vaguely alcoholic perfume.
Born and grown under the Mediterranean sun, in the large cultivations of Vigo Gerolamo.
