A Long Walk 

series of four silk screened photo collages   45 x 70 cm   2020

A Long Walk presents photos from the Botanical Garden of Montreal and from Reunion Island (East coast of Africa).
When I visited the Botanical Garden of Montreal, I entered greenhouses filled with tropical plants I had encountered on Reunion Island. I was instantly back in time, back on an island on the other side of the world, on another continent. Historical, biological and geographical connections make plants travel around the world. Emotional connections can emerge unexpectedly and lead us to new inner territories. A long walk through our past, our imagination, our inner world.
