Five young landscape architects, all of them from different parts of the Quebec woods (Abitibi, Gaspé, Lac Saint-Jean, Laurentians) and all of them working in Cambridge, in the United States, offer a playful and aesthetic second take on the modern-day forest. They have set their garden in a clearing, given it a façade of spruces in barrels, and laid out a linear wooden path, criss-crossed with veins of plastic chips above which rise metal structures filled with enigmatic forest containers. Is this an industrial "plant"? A site for mass consumption, genetic engineering or a cultural exhibition? All these are questions that also come to mind when one attempts to define the contemporary forest.
