The largest contemporary floral art event in the world. It’s called FLORA and it will be held in Córdoba between the 17th and the 27th of October next. The initiative brings together a small group of prestigious international floral artists who will design specific projects for the occasion, who will also be joined by the winner of the Patio Talento Flora Córdoba Ciudad de las Ideas, a contest open to creators designed with the purpose of opening the festival to emerging art, expand contemporary floral art and encourage the generation of talent around this discipline, one of the objectives of the festival since its inception.

Installation by the Japanese Yuji Kobayashi, one of the international artists who will participate in the FLORA 2022 edition.

This year’s edition, the fifth, is celebrated under the motto Metamorphosis, a commitment to turning 2022 into the moment of renewal, of change, of “designing new and better ways of being in the world – in the words of Juan Ceña , one of the promoters of FLORA, founding partner of Zizai Cultura–. A metamorphosis connected with innovation and artistic creation and that, necessarily, must be focused on care and respect for nature”.

The artists will show their creations, unknown at the moment, in some of the most emblematic patios of the Andalusian city. “The festival is a unique event in the world –says Ceña–. In no other place do the great talents of floral art blend in so organically with the city and its surroundings. It is something that can only happen in Córdoba”.

Throughout the four previous editions, 27 artists from 13 different countries have passed through FLORA. For this year, those selected who have confirmed their presence are the British Emma Weaver; the American Maurice Harris; the Spanish studio Cordero Atelier and the Japanese studio Yuji Kobayashi. They will be joined by another Spaniard, Kokon (stage name of María Eugenia Diego), who has been the winner of the contest for young talents.
