MMFA 2017: Claude Cormier TOM IV

Flower Power - TOM IV

Summer-Fall 2017

This installation was designed at the request of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and realized with the support of the Ville de Montréal - City of Montreal. It celebrates the city’s 375th birthday, as well as the 50th anniversary of EXPO 67.

On Montreal's Du Musée Avenue, the TOMs in their 10 different colours radiate like a shower of sparks in a night's fireworks display, and the tangle of circular motives with their separate hues blending into each other reflect the psychedelic spirit of the 1960s.

This work consists of 15,000 temporary overlay markers (TOM) that are regularly used in road-pavement work zones.

This is the 4th work by Claude Cormier exhibited in the Montreal Museum of Fine Art's Sculpture Garden. Read about his previous MMFA installations:
