The Montreal-based artist Nicole Fournier’s work extends outwards from an awareness of interconnected life-forms. Her long-term work of rewilding her land, situated in the midst of a typical suburban neighbourhood, has generated various ecosystems from which she witnesses the performances of plants, microbes, and other life-forms that have taken root there.

The «EmballeToi!» project began from the premise of re-using discarded synthetic winter coats destined for landfill. Fournier introduces the coats onto the land, and allows the soil, insects, and plants to embed themselves on and within these unnatural forms of human insulation. This has led her to hypotheses about the possibility for this system of soil, plants and microorganisms to perform a process of bioremediation of the microplastics from these synthetic materials, which are polluting life in the oceans on a cellular level.

The first adaptations of EmballeToi! have been evolving now for five years on Fournier’s suburban land, where the discarded winter coats have been buried, grown over, and artistically and manually transformed into containers that act as mobile homes for fragmented ecosystems of a biodiversity of plants, soil, microbes and insects.

Fournier presents this artwork as a performance and a long-term installation (1000 years ) that will continue these processes of urban rewilding, bioremediation and fertilising the land proximate to the Fonderie Darling, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, within The House of Dust exhibition and beyond.

Clothesline installation integrated and becoming immersed in seasonal spring and summertime urban forest - clothesline of used clothing and textiles considered waste, clothing and textiles being upcycled on a clotheline installation for valorization, airing itself out by the respiration of the biodiversity of a permaculture backyard forest, urban agriculture development - 19 years of stewardship, 10 years in the making of minimal ecological intervention and non-intervention, non controlling, rewilding.
