Linda COVIT, Havre (2014). Montreal, Quebec (Canada)
The artwork, currently in fabrication, is structured through layerings of
rectangular tubes, their rhythmic crisscrossing positioned to create three
openings. A sculptural embrace, the artwork brings the immensity of the site to
the human scale, engaging the visitor. Open, yet sheltering, Havre
acknowledges the user, offering a pause, a quiet respite, a moment for social
interaction or individual reflection.
During the day natural light projects patterns of shadows through the artwork, transforming with the hours, days and seasons. In the evening almost imperceptibly changing shades of blue to blue-green bathe the artwork, colours that evoke both sky and water, elements essential to life.
A monograph of the artist's work, edited and published by le Centre d'exposition en art actuel Plein sud will be available through http://www.plein-sud.org following a book launch March 12, 2014.
