LANDART

This art form reflected the research he had been pursuing, from the plant sculptures in the orchard to ever-changing installations. Right away, he felt a sense of belonging. From that moment, his research gained a new focus and his backyard became his laboratory. His goal was clear: to participate as an artist in events that feature “LandArt”.

In octobrer 2016, for the Créations-sur-le-champ land art, he creates, with Olivier Lefebvre and Kiev Boisvert, LE RÊVE DU CHEVAL DE GLACE. His dream is to concretize a lull of the conflicts in the world. It's a thought with all those which suffer from the lack of freedom, which undergoes violence, which lives in the hope of a better day, a strong thought to create and maintain peace in the world.
André Boisvert

KAHILI are emblems which were used to identify Pacific Coast tribes. Made from rare birds feathers, they served as family trees and their colours were handed down from one generation to the next… They were brought forth at important ceremonials (births, Chief crownings, marriages), they were also displayed at funerals… These days, little KAHILI are used by shamans to officiate at purification ceremony…

In October 2011, he created an Épurarium in during the fifth edition of Créations-sur-le-champ land art Mont-Saint-Hilaire on the theme of l'art est dans ses feuilles ! In the Middle Ages, after the ravages of the plague, all kinds of things were devised to improve water quality. The most efficient was invented by a French botanist named Chênevert who had the good idea to include coal and peat moss into the funnel of container, the first filter was born. Later, the addition of roots of ferns and camphor raised its discovery in medicine. In those days, all good apothecary had to have its Épurarium. From this invention came medicated waters and later elixirs.

His work received the Coup de cœur 2011, awarded by the public!

In February 2008, André Boisvert was invited to Tunisia by Bill Vazan, an internationally renowned landart practitioner
in order to create several terrestrial works. He returned from the experience highly energized and with increased awareness of the issue of water and its conservation. At the moment, water is a rare commodity which is on the verge of becoming a global issue. Along with corn, whose use as a potential fuel source justifiably raises major concerns, water ranks among his highest preoccupations, and will surely be featured in his upcoming creations.

In October 2007, he took part in the first edition of landart at Mont Saint-Hilaire Création-sur-le-champ.
He created “Apnea at Champlain Sea”: three jellyfish and a tree floating upside down in a pine forest; the illusion of water is startlingly real; the jellyfish truly seem to be underwater because the smallest wave moves them, giving us the opportunity to witness a truly astounding spectacle.

In 2004 he took part in his first plant-based installation at an International Festival/DNA Summit at Mont Saint-Hilaire. “Nyctalopus” emerged from his imagination, Nyctalopus (meaning: one who can see in the dark) is a long tube or cone fixed on a wooden arch, a kind of telescope from where one can gaze at the stars. Aimed at reducing light pollution, Nyctalopus is an oversized creation built from Canadian bamboo.
