Brice Ammar-Khodja and Philippe Vandal present Écotones, an urban laboratory combining artistic interventions and a round table to articulate an aesthetic, critical and social reflection on soil pollution in Montreal. Through two experimental artistic installations on the Champ des Possibles site, Écotones explores urban soil pollution as a creative material. Aspiring to concretize new visualizations of pollution, the artists desire to initiate a dialogue between the citizen, academic, and artistic communities on the issues emerging from urban soil contamination.
Organized in partnership with the Association Les Amis du Champ des Possibles, these interventions will take the form of several activities organized between October 14 and October 28.
Vernissage at Champ des Possibles on October 14, 6pm.
