The sense of smell has been largely overlooked in artistic expression. But there is an exhibition on right now in Montreal that incorporates scent.
At the Galerie d'art Gala, artist Michel Gautier has created a forest of trees made in paper from recycled cotton. They resemeble totem poles.
And some of the sculptures have a kind of perfume spray pump on the side, and when you squeeze it, it sprays out the scent of the Laurentian forest.
Michael Moisseeff has created fragrances for this exhibition.
He's been working closely with Michel Gautier for years. Michael Moisseeff lived in the Quebec in the 70's but now lives in Paris.
