The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership is pleased to have invited Caroline Monnet to create Mooniyang, her first solo architectural projection in the Quartier des Spectacles. The animated work will be presented in collaboration with the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma (FNC) on UQAM’s Pavillon Président-Kennedy, from October 9 to November 24, 2019. Mooniyang is part of FNC Explore, the festival’s new media section, which includes more than 30 world-class works, all on display for free.
Mooniyang (Montreal in the Anishinaabemowin language) is a conceptual exploration of the marks left on the Montreal landscape over the years. Using geometric shapes inspired by traditional Anishinaabe patterns, the territory is divided, reassembled and fragmented in a dynamic series of motions. The ages-old patterns are related to long-suppressed Indigenous knowledge. They represent unknown lands, invisible boundaries and transitional spaces.
This animated work is a continuation of Caroline Monnet’s recent work, in which she explores complex issues of identity, culture and territory.
“I am extremely grateful to the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership for offering me the opportunity to present Mooniyang in the heart of Montreal, outdoors and accessible to all. I hope this new work will inspire people to live together in a spirit of mutual respect,” said Caroline Monnet.
October 9 (Wednesday) 8:00 pm - November 24 (Sunday) 11:00 pm
