Plaza: Maude Bernier Chabot
January 19, 2018 - February 23, 2018

Plaza is a series of sculptures resulting from research into the social and commercial space of Plaza St-Hubert in Montréal. A site of economic and cultural life taking off in the 1950s, Plaza St-Hubert has undergone multiple transformations as new merchants come and go. The result is a cultural mix visible from the storefronts to the back of the shops: fabric stores, restaurants, wedding and ball gowns, beads, used clothing and objects, wigs, multi-ethnic hairdressing salons, and sex shops. The Plaza is a space of abundance where objects pile up, intermingle, and mix. The Plaza has been both as a source of material acquisitions and a source of conceptual inspiration. This research was made possible through support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
