Mathieu Valade

Mythe et évidence, 2016-2017


This sculpture by Mathieu Valade takes the form of an immense box of frosted glass. A light emanates from the interior, delineating the silhouette of a mythical creature, discernable but unrecognizable. The work’s content is thus revealed only through the imagination of the viewer.


Project undertaken in collaboration with Action patrimoine.

Manif d’art is grateful for the assistance of the Cultural Development Agreement between the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the Ville de Québec, as well as Action patrimoine, Maison Henry-Stuart and SDC Montcalm.
