Quebec’s snowy winter is being enlivened by colourful lampshades running down Cartier Avenue.
Installed by Lightemotion, the 34 backlit lampshades are decorated with artworks by Alfred Pellan and Fernand Leduc from the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
Lightemotion describes the installation as having the cost warmth of a residential interior combined with street spectacular. Each lampshade is 8 feet in diameter and 5 feet high, making an art gallery floating in space.
The lampshades will glow down Cartier Avenue until the end of March.
Lightemotion has installed lightscapes around the world, as well as creating performing arts and architectural and museum lighting, including diverse projects such as the Indian Heritage Center in Singapore, Train World rail museum in Brussels, Star City Theatre in Sydney and the Auckland War Memorial Museum.
