Citoyen Urbain
Du moins, je crois bien en être un. 38 ans. Montréalais depuis plus de 21 ans, je suis un employé de la fontion publique depuis maintenant sept ans. Tantôt sur terre, tantôt sous-terre, la vie et le souffle de Montréal, je l’ai sous le nez à tous les jours. Je suis assis aux premières loges. Je l’observe, je vous observe.

Ici, de courts extraits d’histoire quotidienne Montréalaise. Du Montréal sur le pouce… Le fast food de la vignette…

Mesdames et messieurs, UN CITOYEN URBAIN VOUS OBSERVE!

Mira Schendel
Untitled 
1980s
 
Mira Schendel (1919–1988) was one of Latin America’s most important and prolific post-war artists. With her contemporaries Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, Schendel reinvented the language of European Modernism in Brazil. Tate Modern is staging the first ever international full-scale survey of her work. The exhibition reveals aspects of Schendel’s dialogues with a diverse range of philosophers and thinkers, as well as her engagement with universal ideas of faith, self-understanding and existence. It brings together over 250 paintings, drawings and sculptures from across her entire career, including works which have never been exhibited before.
During the 1980s, Schendel created a series of tempera and gold leaf works. These have often been misinterpreted as expressions of decorative luxury - and because of it were vandalised at their first exhibition. In fact, they are a formal expression of a balance between opacity and transparency - while the matt, tempera paint absorbs light; the gold is reflective and therefore transparent. They also refer to the determination of the Self.
