Artist Statement

General Event.
June 14-16. Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau

H2Emotion invites the public to see on June 14, 15 and 16 to a new version of the mapping from the renowned Cité Mémoire Montreal projection circuit, open to all the public. The whole project and production are a gift commissioned, produced and funded by the Bureau du Québec.

The Grand Tableau from Cité Mémoire will be projected onto the façade of the Sant Pau Hospital during three nights. It is a journey through the key periods in Montreal’s history and a look at more than 375 years of history.

Created by multidisciplinary artists Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon in collaboration with playwright Michel Marc Bouchard, the majestic digital work takes a poetic and playful look on the city of Montreal through images, words and music.

The Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau will also host the Main Ceremony of ISEA022 Barcelona, on June 14, where the testimony will be passed to the next city that will host the Symposium, Paris, France.
