ARTIST STATEMENT

In the long corridor connecting Complexe Guy-Favreau and Palais des Congrès, viewers are invited to follow the vinyl arrows that are stuck onto the floor. While these arrows have several meanings for the artist, they primarily symbolize directionality. However, when gathered in large numbers, their meaning quickly becomes amplified. The optical illusion created by the series of arrows, all pointing to a central point of observation, allows viewers to develop new and existing perspectives.
