Building on the success of last year, the International Garden Festival, in collaboration with the Musée de la civilisation of Quebec City, renewed this summer the installation Roof Line Garden by Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster on the roof terrace of the Museum. As a reinterpretation of Line Garden, installed every year since 2014 on the site of the Reford Gardens, in Grand-Métis, the Roof Line Garden II of the Musée de la civilisation offers the public a new outdoor space of enchantment and relaxation.

In Grand-Métis, for the 20th International Garden Festival, the project takes the name of Swing Line Garden. Here it is presented in the same colors as in Quebec City, and visitors are invited to sway under the canopy on an array of swings.

Barricade tape is a ubiquitous, man-made material, typically used to delineate a perimeter and keep people out, but in Roof Line Garden II and Swing Line Garden, it invites visitors in, creating a playful and vibrant canopy.

The visitors are invited to settle there, to live an experience at the same time visual and auditory, which changes according to the intensity of the light and the wind and the resultant varying rustling of the ribbons.

This year, designers Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster were inspired by the color contrasts of poisonous frogs hiding in the foliage of a plant and the theme of natural science. The installation thus has colors that are linked to Venenum: A Poisonous World and Curiosities of the Natural World, the two main exhibitions of the Musée de la civilisation.
