Perspective (2022)

Stainless steel, granite, brass and painted steel
Programme d'intégration des arts à l'architecture du gouvernement du Québec
Location: mezzanine

Perfectly centered and symmetrical, contrasting with the right angles and transparency of the station, Perspective divides and organizes space. Its grid-like structure offers different framed views. The artwork’s shape, pattern and materials are inspired by the formal elements of the station and allow it to blend in harmoniously.

The circular shape and pattern of the sculpture cite the artwork of architect Claude Boucher visible on the station platforms.
