The “Amanita muscaria”, commonly called “fly agaric”, although the most poisonous of mushrooms, is also said to be a lucky charm. For the artist François Besch, fungi are very special organisms. Neither plant nor animal, they represent a particular, specific form of existence: mysterious witnesses of the diversity and power of nature. Thus François Besch set out to roam the woods in search of forest mushrooms from the late summer to the early winter in 2012. He discovered many different species and portrayed them on the spot as “naturally grown sculptures, almost perfect works of art, who most of us, even those who are familiar with the woods because of their daily jogging activities, simply overlook”.
