Cat’s Cradle by Catalyse Urbaine (Juliette Patterson and Michel Langlois) with Gerard Leckey, from Québec, is a garden-sized aeolian harp, in which a lattice of piano strings, objects, and plantings combine to transform the site into a veritable musical instrument.

In addition, a special environmental project by 5.5 designers (Jean-Sébastien Blanc, Anthony Lebossé, Vincent Baranger, and Claire Renard), from France, will be presented. Fleur de pot consists of biodegradable oversized flower pots that gradually become miniature gardens.

Reflections on the Landscape

In keeping with a recent tradition, the Festival has invited six teams of designers to revisit their gardens created last year. These thoughtful and playful reinterpretations of the landscapes of the Gaspé region, as well as far-off lands, will enchant and delight visitors anew.

CÉDULE 40 (Québec) evokes vernacular rural, agricultural, and playground vocabularies in Sous-terrain de jeu, an interactive garden in which visitors participate in the planting the garden, but the earth is not as collaborative.

In Bois de biais, Atelier le balto (Germany) reaffirms the force of vegetation alone to transform a space and advocates the garden as a place of movement and evolution.
