A sugar sculpture on show at Beaugrenelle shopping center

As part of the Les bouteilles à la mer – Jardin Poétique exhibition by William Amor, Chef Instructor Emanuele Martelli has made a spectacular sugar sculpture which is on show at Beaugrenelle shopping centre, alongside Le Cordon Bleu Paris institute.

The sculpture, whose colours reflect those used in the exhibition, took 18 hours to make. Chef Instructor Emanuele Martelli used 10 kg of sugar to make the delicate sculpture which measures 80 cm in height and weighs 9 kg.

The sugar sculpture can be seen at level -1 of the shopping centre. It is part of an interactive and educational exhibition on the theme of plastic and how it is recycled, and features a message tree, photocall, tastings and an immersive experience.


About William Amor

After collecting over 10 000 plastic bottles, thanks to Beaugrenelle’s customers, brands, partners, and those living in the area, visual artist William Amor gave free rein to his imagination and talent to create a monumental, hanging cascade. The work, which is 13 metres high and 7 metres in diameter, symbolises pollution and the impact mankind has on their environment but also hope for a world free of pollution.


Exhibition open until 30 June 2022 at Beaugrenelle Shopping Centre

12 rue Linois 75015 Paris
