À l’aube des restes industriels, architectural projection by Laurence Grandbois Bernard
The multimedia work À l’aube des restes industriels is an architectural projection about the history and memory of railways and industry in Montréal. Laurence Grandbois Bernard is a master’s student in experimental media at UQAM. At the junction between documentary and art film, this work plays with multiple screens to associate archival images with recent footage.
Created by Laurence Grandbois Bernard and presented in collaboration with Friends of Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Mile End Memories and Glen Lemesurier
