Rue Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, Montreal

The Emergence fresco was created as part of a cultural mediation program in the Ville-Marie borough in Montreal. Created in conjunction with a series of workshops with the tenants of the Eugénie Bernier residence, the mural is an anamorphosis that evokes a hole in the ground and a spray of colors emerging from it. Working right besides the billionaire new hospital with its cold angles and the misery of the end-of-the-month backalleys, it was an instructive adventure to rub shoulders with the human realities of this corner of Montreal.
