Based on the concept of filtration, [re]capture is an installation that explores the materialization of atmospheric pollution flows in Montreal. Nomadic objects placed in urban space capture the levels of fine particles, carbon dioxide and organic volatile compounds as well as images of their immediate environment. This data is organized and retransmitted into the exhibition space to inform the behavior of wind and light flows which circulate in a filtration system made of biomaterials and plants recognized for their filtering properties.

[re]capture is carried out as part of the research-creation project “Dynamic flexible membranes: air filtration as an active material, interdisciplinary and environmental process” directed by Alice Jarry (Concordia University) and supported by the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Société et Culture and the Conseil des arts de Montréal. The team would like to thank the City of Montreal Environment Department (Air Quality Division), Patrizio McLelland, Sarah Al Mamoun and Teague Riordon.

Curator : Ariane Plante
