Public Art Project
I wanted to represent Saint-Michel through the youth of its citizens. Having grown up and passed my childhood in this neighbourhood, I asked myself the question: “What do I wish for Saint-Michel for the coming years? What would I like to leave as heritage to that neighbourhood? I walked around during the last year and I met four residents that I photographed in four different places. Those places ,in my eyes, represent the essence of a dynamic of life in a neighbourhood: housing, schools, urban spaces and community life. I have asked them to close their eyes and to make a wish for Saint-Michel in relation with their specific location.
“Regard sur Saint-Michel” is a photo exhibition who’s part of a park and public art development project at François-Perrault parc. The exhibition will be show through all the year of 2017 and 2018. The project include the body of work of two others talented photographers Caroline Hayeur and Catherine Tremblay.
