(TLN) From April 2 – 4, a notable work of contemporary art was on display in the parking lot at Collège Montmorency (in front of the Metro station on de l’Avenir Blvd.) The Carousel BGL was created by a collective of Quebec artists.
The artists behind the work are: Sébastien Bilodeau, Jasmin Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière. The work, which has already travelled around parts of Canada, was in Laval as part of the third Semaine des arts du cégep lavallois.
The interactive work of art was created in such a way as to invite onlookers to get aboard and actually become involved in its operation. Around 75 people, including officials from Collège Montmorency, Laval Mayor Marc Demers and Laval executive-committee vice-president Stéphane Boyer, were on hand for the unveiling of the work.
