The artist from Montreal, Elizabeth Picard, developeda whole series of works of art for the institution of long-term care in Quebec. The series carries the mysterious name Sous le grand arbre: racine, feuille et fleur, which translates into Russian as follows: "Under a large tree: root, leaf and flower".

The beginning of the art object takes directly above the fireplace located in the center of the room and gradually flows to the ceiling. It consists of plastic tapes, aluminum and LEDs. It seems that the real plants come down to us from the ceiling and offer a rest in their company. There is also a second meaning for the "big tree": it is a metaphor for life's journey, designed to remind the staff of the establishment about their serious and amazing mission. Three more parts of this unique sculpture -root, leaf and flower - found their places under the ceiling of each of the floors of the building. To create all the artist used tapes of different shades, skilfully combining them and creating soft gradients. The easy flair of the autumn nature and the deep meaning of the work of art have lodged here for a long time and instantly attract the attention of every visitor. Related articles
