Marie-Jeanne Musiol explores phenomena of an energetic nature and assembles a vast herbarium with the luminous imprints of plants that she captures in electromagnetic fields. Her research, combining intuition and experimentation, also reveals the mirror images of the cosmos embedded in the crowns of leaves. Her works are part of the long history of the fusions of electricity and photography. They are exhibited in the form of light boxes, installations and videos in galleries and museums in Canada and abroad.
