Peter Donegan, Show Garden – Pour L’amour de Jeux

bloom in the parkPour L’amour de Jeux. Garden for Bloom 2008.

Created from a 1957 crashed and damaged pleasure cruise boat that measured 33 foot long that was due to be smashed and dumped; the boat was by hand brought back to something a little more respectable for Pour L’amour de Juex (For a Love of The Game), a 20 metre by 10 metre show garden designed by Peter Donegan.

The garden also featured La Principessa e La Rana (The Princess and The Frog), a sculpt by Paddy Campbell, a part of a marina that was also set for the landfill but saved, sanded and respectfully relaid and a painting, intentionally unfinished and unsigned by the artist.

Whilst all elements of the garden were positioned in new gardens designed by Peter Donegan post Bloom in the Park, the main feature of the garden was taken by Electric Picnic Music Festival and placed opposite the Main Stage.
