The relationship between men and nature, the place left to plants in urban spaces, the protection of the animal kingdom .... Encouraging the public to think about present and future issues, will become the spearhead of Gad Weil´s artistic intention at the beginning of 2010. He signs his first ephemeral vegetal installation on the Champs-Elysées - Nature Capitale Paris - then a second version in Lyon on Place Bellecour, Nature Capitale Lyon.
Beginning of the collaboration between the OECD and Gad Weil for the creation of an educational and artistic event, carried out by 100 Japanese students, Fukushima University and the Japanese Ministry of Education. It is on the Champ de Mars that this project came to life, its aim is to illustrate and celebrate the rebirth of hope for the Youth of Tohoku.
A year dedicated to animal sculptures meant to raise public awareness on the issues of global warming and the protection of biodiversity. 5 years after Nature Capitale, Gad Weil and his artistic accomplices Laurence Médioni and Benoît Afnaim, design and install Petite Fleur Folies at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. In this ephemeral garden, eight original art pieces inspired by the art of folding and origami, come alive thanks to the action of the public. Then he imagines Arche de Noé Climat, a creation launched under the initiative of Ségolène Royal. The artwork consists of 140 sculptures made out of recyclable materials, representing the diversity of animal species. The goal is to make the public and especially children, aware of the consequences of climate change.
26 years after la Grande Moisson, wheat once again becomes the object of a series of installations in France and abroad: Blés Vendôme, Blés Saumur, then Blés Taiwan. This work reminds us that mankind, when acting with respect and attention, knows how to dialogue with nature and to gather its wealth in order to nourish and embellish humankind. That same year, the artist returns to China to a city called Chishui, to design and create with local craftsmen, 5 gigantic animals made of braided bamboo to highlight the difficulty of animal species that have to fight against the disappearance of their natural habitats.
