Flore laurentienne

With remarkable à-propos, borrowing the title of the celebrated plant inventory penned by Frère Marie-Victorin, the Flore laurentienne garden exports a selection of wild plants from their St. Lawrence habitat to San Lorenzo de Padula, a magnificent monastery transformed into a setting for live artistic creation. And the NIPpaysage team has carried their remarkably honed systemic approach even farther: like outsized seeds, huge balls sown and covered in green fabric will gradually sprout plant life at the foot of the monastery wall, signalling the ongoing art occurring within the cells and the life of temporary gardens created in yards.
