Authors curiosity cabinet

Gaston Miron contributed to forging Québec identity by inspiring all the creators of his generation. He is one of the first poets to showcase Quebec culture, the soul of the Quebec people, and its history.

The Gaston Miron Cabinet takes up the archetype of the Québécois worker's house on Villeneuve Square. It is made of laminated safety glass, a steel structure with a mirror finish.
Transparencies are obtained by an arrangement of mirrored, white and frosted films. It is a tribute to the text L'homme rapaillé - Liminaire by Gaston Miron. This work invites passers-by to enter this poem. From the outside we read the name of the author and an immersive reading is deployed inside the structure.

Poem used in the curiosity cabinet

L'HOMME RAPAILLÉ - LIMINAIRE

Pour Emmanuelle
J'ai fait de plus loin que moi un voyage abracadabrant
il y a longtemps que je ne m'étais pas revu
me voici en moi comme un homme dans une maison
qui s'est faite en son absence
je te salue, silence 
je ne suis pas revenu pour revenir
je suis arrivé à ce qui commence

Gaston Miron
(L'Homme Rapaillé, Montréal, l'Hexagone, 1994)
