We were thrilled when we received our letter of acceptance to partake in Art Souterrain. Along with some of our Potholes images which will be exhibited on the walls of the Complexe les Ailes (metro McGill) we are also creating three Potholes installations pieces which will be part performance/installation during the night of Nuit Blanche à Montréal

We are working in collaboration with talented sculptor Véro Dumas who is making our ideas come to life. Here are some photos of the making of so far...
