An artist’s intimate connection to a swath of protected urban parkland in Montréal’s Ahuntsic neighbourhood is the subject of Annie France Leclerc’s Par-delà de la forêt se trouve un jardin. The installation will combine artefacts and artworks past and present to create a dialogue between the Boisé de Saint Sulpice and woodland of Leclerc’s childhood home in the Lower St. Lawrence valley. Exploring the potential of personal history, urban nature areas, and plants, the artist hopes to elicit a sense of interconnection between biological and psychological phenomena – each evolving in a delicate shared space – so as to reveal the power of these manifold processes.
