During the month of October, in spite of the covid-19 lockdown,  the work of 4 women artists (Fannie Bittner-Dumas, Marin Blanc et Dominique Yelle and Cybèle B.Pilon) from Hochelaga neighborhood (Montréal) is exhibited in the storefront of Sainte-Catherine street's shops. My artworks are currently exhibited at the HOMA Dental Clinic until October 31st. Fenêtres intempestives is an initiative of the organization CAPP - Corporation d'animation des places publiques.

The project was a great occasion for me to explore other ways than ceramic to work on my visual approach. it also represents a growing interest for me to dig in my close surroundings for inspiration. Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is where I live since I started my family. By pure coincidence, the place were I live now is rooted to my past. Sixty years before I arrived, my family were merchants at the same spot. Hochelaga-Maisonneuve's industrial past is also something that I want to explore in the near futur in my practice.   

1. La Pataterie is a diptych 100% inspired by the neighborhood. The emblematic restaurant (La Pataterie) on Ontario Street and its famous poutine are covered with the same pattern, inspired by the rose window of the Très-Saint-Nom-de-Jésus church in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district.
2. Large yellow canvas represents a fragment of a circular pattern, commonly used in Cybèle's work. Thus circumscribed, the repetition of the pattern breaks and gives birth to an abstract composition of curves and points.
