The Dodo again about him. A whole family including the mother Dodo, dad and children Dodo Dodo was housed in its new home on the roundabout of Flic-en-Flac. The initiative for this project came to pARTage group led by Krishna Luchoomun and, ultimately, there are five young artists who have had a hand in the dough to make the six sculptures Dodo for this unusual garden.
Looking for a place to install the garden, pARTage group had the support of the Forces Vives of Flic-en-Flac having permission to turn the roundabout in the town dedicated a garden to bed . The project also had the support of the Ministry of Arts and Culture funding the materials were using in artists. "We started to work on the spot and it took several weeks to make the sculptures," says Krishna Luchoomun.
The sculptures are made with cement. "This is a project that will last over time," says Krishna Luchoomun. In addition, the garden will not go unnoticed because "every person who comes in Flic-en-Flac see the sculptures." This is also the goal of this project by Krishna Luchoomun. "We want to bring art to the public. In Mauritius, rarely seen works of art in public places and Mauritians are not fond galleries. In creating this sculpture garden, art is part of everyday life for people who pass through this region of the island, "said the project manager.
The idea of this project has sprouted since 2010 following the "Dodo Project" which brought together twenty Mauritian artists around this iconic animal. "It was not necessarily sculptures. Each artist has created a work inspired by the dodo, "says Krishna Luchoomun. In 2010, the Dodo was the center of interest. And not only artists were concerned. A printmaking workshop was organized with the inhabitants of the region of Flic-en-Flac. Then it was up to local children to participate in various workshops pARTage had its premises in Flic-en-Flac.
