Installation - Batîment

Installation - Batîment | Espace jardin | Scoop.it

How fun is this? Bâtiment (Building) is a mirrored installation by artist Leandro Erlich currently on display at Le 104 in Paris as part of their In_Perceptions exhibition. The piece is clever in its simplicity: a massive building facade is constructed on the floor near a towering mirror giving anyone reflected the uncanny appearance of being weightless. Optical illusions are familiar territory for Erlich, whose pool installation appears to plunge air-breathing gallery patrons several feet underwater. Bâtiment is on display through March 2012.

Installation artistique : Le musée des possibles

Installation artistique : Le musée des possibles | Espace jardin | Scoop.it

We created a daylong pop-up installation inviting visitors to share their dreams and visions in a playful yet actionable poll of public opinion, letting people tell the city, directly and tangibly, what they’d like to do with the space.

 

The Museum of Possibilities was created during Montréal’s city-wide open day for Museums. Members of the public could pick up a piece of paper and write down what they would like to see, do, or who they would like to meet in this space. Visitors entered the field of balloons to add an entry to the museum of possible things which might happen on site.

 

We also wanted to inspire people to imagine the possibilities! Juice of possibilities in mystery colors, also bingo and dice gave extra prompts - 'at sunset', 'on my birthday', 'by bicycle' or 'with the girl of my dreams' - to help imagine scenarios of when, how, and with whom events might happen.

 

Visitors received a set of stickers so they could wander through and add votes of approval, collectively choosing the best visions for their shared space. This voting helped to turn possibilities into probabilities for park activity in the future.

At the end of the day, 500 balloons were given away and the pop-up museum disbanded.

Installation : 21 Balançoires

Installation : 21 Balançoires | Espace jardin | Scoop.it

Created and produced with support from Quartier des spectacles de Montréal21 Balançoires takes over a newly open space in front of Université du Québec à Montréal’s Science Faculty. Together with Luc-Alain Giraldeau, an animal behaviour professor from the faculty, we explored the topic of cooperation which states that together we achieve better things than separately.

 

The result is a giant collective instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation. The project stimulates ownership of the new space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.

 

We owe the musical interpretation of this playful experiment to composer Radwan Ghazi-Moumneh.

Le nom des arbres, 2002


Intervention sur 12 arbres du Parc St Roch. "C’est en imaginant ce que contenaient les bâches blanches qui protègent les arbres pour l’hiver, que j'ai eu l’idée de les baptiser de noms de femmes-fleurs. Patiemment, j'ai cousu à la main les noms de Rose, Jasmine, Violette et autres sur les toiles recouvrant les douze arbres du parc Saint-Roch Québec"
