Here is documentation of the short-lived life of my mural… It was installed on August 19, I had an opening for it on the 20th and by the 28th the panel was taken down. Normally, these installations last longer, but we suddenly got a lot of rain in a short amount of time. At the end, the wasps were becoming an “issue” of public safety (ie: the City of Montreal asked us to take it down!). But it was at the end of its life anyway, so we appeased them.
Photo documentation from this week-long process of degeneration is being used to create a single photo-montage that will replace the sugar mural. This billboard image will launched for the opening of the 2009 Mois de la photo in Montreal at the Darling Foundry on September 12.
