Suspended in Time


Three sculptures by Éric Cardinal will be installed on a new public square in the village du Vieux-Pointe-aux-Trembles.

Ici avant, ensuite et maintenantis a sculpture evoking the history and archaeology of the neighbourhood, and the presence of the St. Lawrence River nearby. With its many different components, the work offers a brilliantly colourful portrait of the history of Pointe-aux-Trembles. Inaugurated on October 24, it was the borough’s first art work to be installed in a public space.

In his artistic process, Éric Cardinal enjoys transforming everyday objects. He is inspired by the unique properties of their different materials to give life to his ideas.

The new public square is part of a major initiative to revitalize Vieux-Pointe-aux-Trembles and Saint-Jean-Baptiste boulevard. Being an ideal place for meet-ups, the square also has a fun-filled summer program of cultural events.
