SITEWORKS

Siteworks is based upon an intervention into specific sites within the city. All sites are dissolving fragments of former prominent Montréal industries.

The images were placed to reveal something of the site to a passerby, the contemporary urban flâneur, be it on foot, by car, bike or boat.

Some still remain abandoned and some are encountering change and redevelopment. Images from my own archive of these sites taken during the last twenty years were enlarged to minimally 1.2m x 2.4m in a scale relative to the site.

Each of these black and white photographs were inserted into its specific site and the nature of its invention, like the conceptual land works of the 1960-70's, was derived of the site.
The images were then abandoned indeterminately, reiterating the temporality of memory and event. The intervention transformed these industrial landscapes both in time and in space.
