Bridge - Bench

Created and directed in collaboration with Vincent Morisset

Bridge - Bench was part of KM3
, a public art exhibition in the Quartier des spectacles in 2017.

For the first time, a physical place was the starting point. We inherited the Peace Park, a landmark of Montreal street skate on Saint-Laurent Boulevard.
This unique place, animated by complex dynamics between its regulars, naturally shaped the project.
It made us want to catalyze the presences and ephemeral encounters between people in the park; to evoke the fast mutation of the area where destruction and creation constantly crash up against each other.

At nightfall, visitors who sit on our bench become the convergent and divergent forces that transform the interactive projection of imaginary tectonic plates. The monumental bench served as an interface and is now a permanent bench for the Peace Park.
