Text description provided by the architects. As part of the event Métis-sur-Montréal, now in its fourth consecutive year, Château Ramezay and the Reford Gardens present the exhibit Tisse Métis Égal created by the collective PLUX.5. This imposing architectural structure, perched on the grassy pedestal at Place De La Dauversière, offers a surprising new perspective of the city’s urban landscape. A unique look at Old Montréal!

Erected in the heart of the historical district, this contemporary installation acts as a bright coloured filter that transforms our perception of the surrounding environment. Its walls, perforated with a scatter of triangular patterns—cleverly evocative of traditional weaving, particularly the ornamentation of the arrowhead sash—draw a striking parallel with Québec’s past. Inside, visitors are immersed in a play of shadows and light that shapes their understanding of the work and its surrounding elements. Tisse Métis Égal is a tribute to Québec history, offering a brilliant interpretation of its traditions through a contemporary lens.

The installation was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening to the public of the Reford Gardens and the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Antiquarian and Numismatic Society of Montréal (ANSM), the founder of Château Ramezay – Historic Site and Museum of Montréal. Tisse Métis Égal is presented free of charge at Place De La Dauversière in Montréal until October 13, 2012.
