Flora is an international flower festival held in the city of Cordoba in Spain. The event is an annual opportunity for botanical artists around the world to gather and boast their own “flora” creations. The flowery installations serve as a public exhibit in Cordoba’s historical patios and courtyards.
The flower festival is the result of the collaboration between s.l., the Zizai Hotels, and the city hall of Cordoba itself. Its goal was to boost the city’s tourism and cultural exchange by letting artists highlight their unique art made of different kinds of flowers.
The winner of the 2017 Flora Festival is “waterlily pond” the American duo made up of Daniel Schultz and Natasha Lisitsa that made a piece inspired by a flamenco dancer’s dress. Second place was given to Belgium-based artist Tomas De Bruyne for his “Paradise: Delirium and Desire.” And the third prize was awarded to the Australian team Loose Leaf for their piece” free fall.”
