Inspector Street/Rue de l'inspecteur
everything appears to be perfectly normal at the corner of Inspector Street in
front of the building that houses the daily newspaper L’Urbain. But
it would be a mistake to ignore a newspaper left on a bench, its headlines
warning of most unusual phenomena. And it would be an even bigger mistake not
to notice what’s going on inside this very same newspaper.
a gust of wind, the pages turn, fold, and come to life, and fantastical
creatures emerge from the black-and-white photos within: a bridge that turns
into a caterpillar; a steeple transforming into a sharp-beaked bird; a dome
that becomes an astonishing octopus; a doodle animating itself. Wild and
elemental forces have been unleashed.
wielding paper cut-outs, origami, and a
sense of humour, Emmanuelle Loslier blends film noir, science fiction,
fantasy, poetry, and sound textures to plunge us into the heart of a
surprising and stunning universe in which the buildings of Montreal—for better
or for worse—have never been so alive.
