With a focus on promoting contemporary design from Canada and helping local designers, the CCC proposes Fictions as a freeform exploration of shape, materiality and function, taking the viewer into a multi-sensorial experience. Thirteen works – from eight established and emerging artists – compose the display, including Lambert & Fils, Atelier Zébulon Perron, Pascale Girardin, Claste to name a few.
The setting, reminiscent of seventies sci-fi and surveillance cameras, will prompt users to immerse themselves into the exhibition by choosing one of four different camera angles: floor view, a bird’s eye, detail, and overall view. They will be strongly encouraged to periodically return to the exhibition as the lighting will change throughout the day – a discrete signifier of the passing of time, and a unique element of the exhibition.
Breaking away from the traditional in-real-life design installation, Fictions takes the viewer into this unique experience through compelling imagery and video footage, state-of-the-art technology and original soundscapes. An intriguing and mysterious journey that makes the audience wonder how these elegant and majestic pieces ended up there.
