backlit digital prints diptych, lightboxes _ 2009
Dimensions per lightbox : 80 x 50 x 30 cm
Shot at the Biodôme (a museum in Montreal that recreates some ecosystems of the Americas), this photographic diptych shows two different views of the same hall, where the St Laurent river’s ecosystem was recreated. No modifications have been made to the photographs, even though spectators have the impression to look at digital collages. This strange impression is enhanced by the presence of a wall panting in the scenery, and the mixture of natural and artificial elements, characteristic of the Biodôme.
