Presentation of the artwork
The untitled work is composed of the main entrance door, the two light fixtures on the sides of the entrance, and the canopy above the door at the Maison de la culture de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

These moulded-aluminum elements are integrated with the architecture and contrast strongly with the neo-Renaissance vocabulary of architect Théodore Daoust.

The doors present bas-reliefs in abstract and symmetrical forms and are punctuated with four small windows, two of them transparent and two turquoise. The canopy and light fixtures reprise the motifs and surface treatment of the doors.

Associated events
Sylvie Rochette’s work was installed during refurbishment of the Maison de la culture de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, in 1984, in the context of the Quebec government’s Politique d’intégration des arts et à l’architecture et à l’environnement des bâtiments et des sites gouvernementaux et publics. This cultural centre is situated in a former police station built in 1910.
