Art piece commissioned by Montreal Quartier des spectacles Partnership for the public art event KM3, presented for 2 months in Fall 2017.
KM3 aimed to bring art to public spaces on a larger scale than Quartier des spectacles had before, in both iconic and unexpected parts of the urban fabric, invite creators to reinvent them, and get people to experience and think about the city differently.
Prrr... is a light-based work occupying the empty space above a building with a rich history and drawing from the neighbourhood’s memories. Attracted by the glow emanating from imposing blinds, passersby are invited to go down this unassuming street and dis- cover the small house that hides there, unaffected by the passage of time. As they look up, they are taken in by the light moving behind the blinds, and
by the evocative soundtrack on their cellphones.
