Late Herbarium

Cabinets de curiosities, La Baie Public Library, Saguenay, 2019

This part of the cabinet of curiosities series consists in collecting plant residues and creating an original herbarium. Thus, following the spring snowmelt, I collect plants from my environment. Also, I shape spheres in white clay in the manner of snowballs rolled on the plants to collect fragments. In all, 27 plant species are harvested, the list (in french) of which is presented here at the bottom of the page.

This project was supported by the Conseil des arts de Saguenay within the Programme de soutien aux projets spéciaux (PSPS).
