THE INFLUENCE OF SINGAPORE AND SOUTHEAST ASIA ON THE FRENCH ART DE VIVRE
Famous throughout the world for being a garden city, Singapore originally served as a regional trading hub of the spice route before becoming a capital of tropical gardens. Along the way, Singapore and the region have undeniably influenced the French art de vivre, including its gastronomy.
The exhibition, curated by one of France’s most renowned garden and plant experts Pascal Garbe in collaboration with the Singapore Botanic Gardens, presents emblematic plants linked to the history of Singapore and Southeast Asia and their connections with the French art de vivre.
