Wall treatment (1986)
Polymer concrete and stainless steel
Location: throughout the station
Restoration of Jean-Noël Poliquin's work of art: The wall coverings of this station are being restored. The work will regain its magnificent colours once the work is completed, allowing us to ensure the integrity of our artistic heritage.
On the brightly coloured polymer concrete walls, the artist has placed an ingeniously designed stainless steel element that performs a variety of functions as it continues through the station. At times a handrail, arm rest, support for seats or signs, this artwork is truly versatile.
