Condemned

The Vie d’Ange art gallery, a converted auto garage at 6820 rue Marconi in Montréal, was sold and slated for demolition very soon after the neighborhood was renamed “Mile-Ex” by developers. Microsoft began construction of a tech hub building across the street from the gallery and Vie d’Ange was notified to vacate.
For the gallery’s final project "Condemned", an updated version of the photo-sculpture “Condo ’88” (left) was designed and erected, and will remain on-site permanently until both structures, the gallery and the installation, are demolished to make way for free-market urbanism.
