Montreal's Mosaicultures Internationales
Some of us plant flower boxes of geraniums. Those of us with a real flair plant complex arrangements in their flower beds - thinking about colours and design, shading and shapes. But the art of mosaiculture is all that on steroids. It turns plants into monumental horticultural sculptures.
Fifty of these massive sculptures are on display, as of today, at Montreal's botanical gardens.
It's the Mosaïcultures Internationales Montréal 2013 competition, which brings together mosaiculture artists from 20 countries. Montreal last hosted the event 10 years ago, but it launched the first one in 2000. Lise Cormier was there.
She's the founder of the prestigious competition and president of the International Mosaiculture Committee, She speaks with Sonali Karnick from the Botanical gardens, where the event gets underway this morning.
