Yes that’s right – a festival all about lemons, and it is of course held in a sleepy backwater in France. However, it’s not quite what you might think.
We immediately thought of lemon sorbet, lemon meringue pie and lemonade, but this seems to go a bit further than that. The theme of this year’s festival is “Film” and there is therefore a whole series of sculptures dedicated to film, made almost entirely from lemons.
It might be just us, but does that dinosaur not look suspiciously like it is made from oranges?!
Anyway, this is a pretty staggering (if bizarre) installation and deserves a lot of praise. But the thing is meant to be up for a week, so we just hope they have used the freshest lemons…
