Walking along the streets of Montreal on garbage day is for some a nightmare, others a playground. For artist Alexis O’Hara, the latter rings true. His art exhibition running from Nov 29- Dec 20th in Montreal features his new interactive sculpture piece titled “Squeeeequee! The Improbable Igloo”. Utilizing found materials, he creates an immersive sonic space constructed from 60-70 recycled speakers, all from Ecocentres or found on garbage day, creating a cozy, winter fort wonderland of sound. With carefully placed pillows and a microphone inside the sculpture, he creates a fun, inviting, memorable experience. This is your chance to echo your voice, with 4 microphones as the sole audio source for you and other howlers!
Shed your inhibitions & create dynamic sound! This cocoon of beauty from trash is a must see! Whether it’s nostalgic memories of winter fort building or making a cocoon , his sculpture is one to see and experience.
Squeeeequee! The Improbable Igloo will be on display at Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve (4200 Ontario E.), Nov. 29 – Dec. 20.
