Soujardin / Undergarden (2010-2011)

Finalist project for the Scotiabank people's choice award 2011

Undergarden is a hanging garden lit with a specific array of lights that enable it to grow and develop under the conditions of confinement of the underground.  This artificial landscape reenacts natural phenomena to a point that can seem absurd, but nevertheless sustains a quality of fragility intrinsic to nature.  Furthermore, this installation is made with reused plants from the streets of Montreal and recycles hoarding material of construction sites of the city.  Undergarden aims to push the seasonal aspect of gardening and to bring it to life to the underground during the winter.  Would the underground then become a more suitable place that you could call a park?  Could you imagine calling it a landscape?
