I am working on a 2-part project in Montreal for August/September 2009. It’s for the “Plan Large” project that the Darling Foundry does in conjunction with Mois de la photo. The Darling Foundry has 4 public billboards located in Old Montreal. For each Mois de la photo biennale, the Foundry selects 2 new artists for 2 of the billboards. With this scheme, each billboard stays for 4 years.
I was selected for the ground level billboard this year. The first part of the project is to install a newly designed sugar mural on top of the existing billboard space. As this is a temporary mural, I will be documenting it throughout its demise. This sugar mural will be installed in the beginning of August. Once I have completed my documentation, I will be composing a photo-montage from my documentation. Regardless of its appearance, the panel will the removed by the middle of September so that the photo can be installed in it’s place.
The opening for the Mois de la photo is September 12. At this time, I am still uncertain if the photo will be up for this date, or if the sugar mural will remain. The original idea was to leave the sugar mural up for the opening, so that people could see this ephemeral work before it’s gone. Since the photo billboard will be up for 4 years, there will be ample opportunity for people to see the photo at a later date. This is likely what will still happen.
Here are some images of my design at my studio. The pattern is printed out to the scale and shape of the actual mural (approx. 5 1/2 feet high x 12 feet wide).
