Internationality and criteria characterise once again this year’s FLORA jury, which will visit the five installations on the opening day of the Festival and choose the I FLORA Prize, worth 25,000 euros, and the II FLORA Prize, worth 10,000 euros. There will also be a FLORA Audience Award for the favourite installation of its visitors, who will be able to vote through the Festival’s Instagram (@festivalflora).


Curator at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and independent curator. Specialising in Latin American art and photography, Marie Perennès (1991) focuses her research on women artists, indigenous societies and the representation of social, ecological and political struggles.

At the Fondation Cartier in Paris, she has recently curated monographic exhibitions dedicated to Graciela Iturbide (2022) and Damien Hirst (2021), as well as the group shows Nous les Arbres (2019) and Géométries Sud (2018).

He is currently preparing an exhibition project on the use, change and abuse of the landscape of the Balearic Islands to be shown at the Es Baluard Museum in Palma de Mallorca in 2023, as well as solo and curatorial projects at the Palau de la Virreina and Banco de España in Madrid in 2024.


Kokon is the personal project of the artist María Eugenia Diego (Zamora, 1989), who revisits the link between human beings and beauty and nature, especially in the needy urban environment. The artist plays with this triad by using natural elements, whose history and vegetal origin mark the leitmotiv of the installations, to design large-scale pieces and spaces that create a powerful connection with the spectator. It is no coincidence that María Eugenia Diego is an architect: space and flora maintain a palpable dialogue in all her works, establishing a “new look” at environments or materials that are often familiar to us, rethought in a new context by the artist.

In 2018, after working in several architecture studios, she decided to take a turn in her career, entering the world of floral design. A year and a half as a florist at Loewe Flores and a pandemic were the perfect breeding ground to create her personal proposal, fleeing from the mere decorative field of conventional floristry.

Winner of FLORA in 2022 with her installation Ovidio, the Kokon universe grows little by little between large-scale installations, set-design, workshops and botanical experiences to bring, especially to cities, a conscious message about the disconnection we maintain with the fascinating world of plants.
