Video capsules

Gilles Mihalcean, Philippe Lupien and public art


In this video capsule accompanying the Gilles Mihalcean exhibition, assist to a meeting between Philippe Lupien, architect, and Gilles Mihalcean, sculptor, at Place des Arts in Montreal. Around the artist's work, Paquets de lumière, they discuss art in the public space.

“A work of art in the museum, we go to see it, we learn about the materials, we learn about its history, who made it, etc. But in the public space, we do not see it, we are not in a hurry, finally. Then, a ray of sunshine strikes somewhere, and suddenly one day we go by and - ah! - we see what we had never seen before..."

- Gilles Mihalcean
