Thanks to the teacher from Merano Patrizia Ferrari , Concentus Study Group is back in the city of the Dolomites with the organization of the main event of the Merano Flower Festival together with the Merano Company.

For the occasion we invited the famous Ikebana artist Ilse Beunen, (Belgium – Sogetsu Azalea Study Group) who, in collaboration with the members of the Concentus Study Group and Angelika Mühlbauer (Munich – Germany) will realize “Connected”: a 20 m² work, with natural materials from the Merano area. The installation is a combination of metal structures, tendrils and flowering branches: materials that reflect the character of Merano.

The local school Luis Zuegg also participates in the collaboration under the guidance of Christian Raffl.

Ikebana (“living flowers”) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. While similar western art forms often emphasize the number and the color of the flowers used, ikebana emphasizes the
use of lines and of “empty” spaces. Few flowers and branches suffice to create an artful yet simple and clear arrangement.
Nowadays, ikebana can be included in the visual arts. Its main (but not sole) components are flowers, but materials such as plastic, metal or scrap metal may also be used in floral arrangements.
During the Merano Spring event, an ikebana exhibition and two ikebana workshops are held at Merano’s Thermal Baths and presented by the Concentus Study Group.
