“HERBARIO” in Antigua, Guatemala



January 14 – March 8, 2012

Marie-Noëlle Fontan’s prime materials are plants and their own forms and textures: roots, stems, pods and leaves, which maintain their form but not their order. This material is collected during Marie-Noëlle’s frequent travels.

Tangling, handling, spinning and weaving plants on her loom, she achieves her own form of landscaping to nourish our senses and imagination.


Marie-Noëlle’s work can be deemed as a return to the natural sources in textile art.

This week she inaugurated her exhibition “HERBARIO” in Guatemala, which will be open to the public until March 8.
