Micropolis 2.o

Micropolis 2.0 is an installation made out of cut out screenprints and digital prints inspired by landscapes and citizens of Montreal, Québec City and Toronto. It was created by Allison Moore and Arthur Desmarteaux during artistic research residencies at Engramme print studio in Québec City, Open Studio in Toronto and Atelier Graff in Montreal. It was first shown at Artist Proof Gallery in Calgary during Summer 2010 and lastly at the Museum of Fine Arts of Belem in the Amazon, Brazil in 2014 as part of the exhibition Ao Norte Do Norte.

The panoramic piece is accompanied by a thirty minutes long soundtrack composed with field recordings in Canadian cities by Arthur Desmarteaux. There is also a video screen within the Supa Pussy building section, showcasing an animation of an exotic dancer created by Allison Moore. The installation is evolving organically and is modular. The positions of the cut out prints changes in different settings and the piece once was twenty meters long when it was exhibited at Maison de la culture Ahuntsic in Montreal.

A travel grant from Québec Council of the Arts helped to present this exhibition Alberta Printmakers Gallery in Calagary and a travel grant from Canada Council of the Arts also helped to create the project at Open Studio in Toronto.
