So who better to interpret the unique aesthetics of the Crau Plain Grasshopper than Anne-Lise Koehler? And to embody it in tangible and playful objects?

In 2022, the LIFE SOS Crau Grasshopper team turned to the artist Anne-Lise Koehler to design didactic, yet elegant tools to raise awareness among the public. Because this is where the issues surrounding our little insect need to be appropriated by the public… and appropriated, in this case… by manipulating.

In 2022, she designed a “Crau Plain Grasshopper” mask made of paper – to be cut out and assembled – to offer youngsters a fun activity to be found at the Ecomusée de la Crau, as well as on the stands of various upcoming events (Fête de la Nature, Festival de Camargue, Salon des agricultures de Provence)

She has also made four large papier-mâché Crau Plain Grasshopper head sculptures to put on the skull and display for the team at various events. A human-sized cricket! It’s wonderful!

Thank you, Anne-Lise, for showing us that ecology is also a space for creation, and that art is a privileged medium for transmission and education about the environment!

She cuts, assembles, glues, paints and articulates pieces of paper. She sculpts organic figures, plants, animals, then animates them. Her works transpire a naturalist sensitivity at the “edge of the brush”.
