Vendôme (Marcelle Ferron)

Marcelle Ferron

Stained-glass window and sculpture (1981)

Antique stained glass and stainless steel
Location: entrance building

The artist combined a stained-glass window with a spiral-shaped stainless steel sculpture stretching across the station. The window spreads natural light to the platforms, while the sculpture scatters its endless, changing colours.

Restauration of the artwork

The restauration of the stained glass window is now complete! Visit our photo gallery to see it from every angle.

Did you know?

Originally, the sculpture was intended to produce sounds from the wind from the movement of the trains, like a huge set of panpipes.

About the artist

Born in Louiseville, Marcelle Ferron (1924-2001) made her artwork accessible by integrating it into the architecture of public buildings. As she said, “My aim has always been modest: to transform the arranged marriage [of art and architecture] into a love match.”
