The Hanging Gardens

Ephemeral art project in public places organized by Saguenay, 2021

During the summer of 2021, I am interested in the flowering of vegetable and herbaceous plants in my garden. At the same time, I photograph the surrounding market garden landscapes. From the cohabitation between plant intimacy and landscape immersion follows an exhibition presented in three versions near the public markets of the three boroughs: La Baie, Chicoutimi and Jonquière. In addition, this cycle of research and creation on the theme of the garden, where each stage is linked to the previous and the next, will continue until June 2022.

La Baie: Little house at the Market Square, intersection of Albert and de la Fabrique streets, on Thursdays, August 25, September 2, September 9 and September 16, 2021 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Chicoutimi : Chicoutimi Library, windows facing Place du citoyen, until October 29, 2021. Jonquière: Gazebo of the Park of the City of Arvida, August 23 to August 26, 2021.
