Manfred Kirschner, creative director of Crystal Ball Gallery, is transforming the gallery space into a flower shop with “Artist – Flowers”, on the 26th of April 2013 (gallery weekend). The flower shop concept is especially addressed to art lovers, gallery owners and art educators, inviting them to explore these self-centered floral excesses of the art world of the city. Kirschner’s “Beau Rivage” flower shop offers decorative plants and houseplants, with regional and international artists lending their names to each and every one of them. With the motto “Everything has to go!”, Kirschner is offering a cynical and detailed inside view on how to care for the palm tree “Wehmüller”, the cyclamen “E-Graal”, the cactus “GMS” and many other artist-plants. The reason why the Beau Rivage flower shop openins with what could be described as a yard-sale, is, according to Kirschner “… just the nature of things. Development and decay are also art motifs of this yard sale, as shown by the often nerve wrecking Egomania of the concept’s protagonists. “
