Merry-go-view, 2023

Passages Insolites, EXMURO arts publics, Québec



This interactive installation challenges the overly hasty, linear way we travel from place to place instead of taking the time to stop and contemplate the richness of the world around us. The open seats beckon the public to climb aboard and begin pedalling, initiating a gentle circular movement that affords a new perspective—one that might let us take the full measure of our environment.

Incline, 2018

Third Shift Public Art Festival, Saint John (NB)



This installation highlights a series of windows cut at ground level by the elevation of Grannan Street. Taking the form of these windows and their brick frame, the project is concretized by three modules deposited on the ground. These in turn play with the incline and become a short staircase. While being useful, this project wish to draw attention on an architectural feature often seen in Uptown St John.

 

À deux c'est mieux!, 2017
Art Souterrain Public Art Festival,
Palais des Congrès, Montréal



À deux, c’est mieux! is a very simple and delicate intervention that gives a look to the common space, its design as well as its possible uses. The interest of this project is in the experience that people will make of it. While the shape and the movement reminds the seesaw swing, the ambiguous position of such an object of amusement refers to the horse swaying in exchange for a few coins. Then, this project asserts, in its functioning, the idea that pleasure is linked to a shared experience with another. Indeed, the swing can only function by having an accomplice in the game. Both seats, however, are back, and this, to affirm the individuality of the experience, even while sharing a common reality.

The Inverted Square, 2016

Artwork realised in collaboration with the artist residency at Jiwar Creacio I Societat, Barcelona (Spain)

 

The Inverted Square (La place inversée) represents the empty space impressed into the urban fabric by the square. The work, while directly interacting with its immediate context, fulfils a twin vocation as both sculpture and street furniture, with multiple levels each providing places for adults and kids to sit, climb or play. The project is designed to encourage people to take a break from the constant movement of city life by encouraging passerby to stop, interrogate, take a seat and, above all, be more attentive to the urban environment they occupy. 

 

Thanks to Mireia Estrada, Maria-Jesus Bronchal and Fernando Bravo for their help and collaboration in this project.
