Ombre de Ville as conceived by French artist Jean-Paul Ganem sits at the crossroads between visual arts and installation practice. Reflecting upon the aesthetic function of landscape and the environment the artist utilizes vegetation as the base material of his artistic practice. Working up the walls of the Darling Foundry and Cluny ArtBar this vertical garden presents a new aesthetic landscape and living urban space. Ombre de Ville is installed at the corner of Ottawa and Prince street and visible at all times, up until the first frost.
Jean Paul Ganem born in Tunis in 1964.
