Musée du Fjord, Ville de Saguenay, October 19, 2021 to January 16, 2022

Six works are displayed in the exhibition spaces and reflect my process of observation, reflection, and imagination toward the museum’s living and cultural collections. To do this, I integrate the plant world into the museum by creating fictitious marine plants from photographs of plants in my garden. I favour the colour turquoise blue to link my images to the specific context of the institution dedicated to the ecosystem of the Saguenay Fjord and, by extension, evoke the environment of the ocean depths. Through these artistic interventions, I explore the beauty of the plant world in the same way that I relate to the themes addressed by the museum. Thus, I display a framed work with a scarlet tulip as its subject. This flower with its singular petals links the symbolism of red of the sector named Intimate Secrets.
