“Timelaps of the installation By Jules Beauchamp-Desbiens Corten steel, galvanized steel International Civil Aviation Organization Plaza, City of Montreal. Dendrites are branched projections of a neuron, which propagate cerebral stimulations; the term is derived from the Greek dendron, which means relative to the trees. The two sculptures Dendrites reproduce this microscopic phenomenon at the landscape scale, while recalling large trees’ barrels. Climbing the steps of these trees allows passers-by to inhabit the landscape and reconnect with its surroundings. Passers-by animate the work – like the foliage of a tree.”

“Electric resistance writes out the letters that form the words ‘Embrase-moi’ (Set me ablaze). A love affair is a desire for the circulation of energy and heat between bodies, but by connecting opposing forces, it also functions as a form of resistance.”
