Passages Insolites: Québec City’s Public Art Circuit



The 6th edition of Passages Insolites brings together 14 artworks produced by 40 local and international artists and architecture collectives whose work plays on the idea of ?unusual passages?.
These artists pose profound questions about the world around us by implementing unexpected elements in pathways that are normally taken for granted in Québec City’s historic Petit Champlain and Saint-Roch districts.
Passages Insolites is produced by EXMURO arts publics, curated by Vincent Roy, and presented by the Ville de Québec.
?Sometimes flamboyant, sometimes introspective, always surprising, these works together present a deeply contemporary take on the urban space they inhabit,? says EXMURO.
From June 20 to October 14, 2019, Passages Insolites invites people of all ages to discover its fun and thought-provoking artworks free of charge. BGL (Québec City)
The Portal

The collective BGL (composed of Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère, and Nicolas Laverdière) has created an ambiguous project exploring the precarious balance between the need for control and freedom, following the rules and letting loose. The Portal is a metal gate constructed from security fences with what seems to have been a forced opening, but a closer look reveals handcrafted ornamentation.
