Écotones: A Series of Artistic Interventions at the Champ des Possibles

October 14 - 23, 2022

Brice Ammar-Khodja and Philippe Vandal present Ecotone,  a critical and social reflection on soil pollution in Montreal. 

October 14-23, 2022

Écotones is an urban laboratory combining artistic interventions and a round table to articulate an aesthetic, critical and social reflection on soil pollution in Montreal. Through two experimental artistic installations on the Champ des Possibles site, Écotones explores urban soil pollution as a creative material. Aspiring to concretize new visualizations of pollution, the artists desire to initiate a dialogue between the citizen, academic and artistic communities on the issues emerging from urban soil contamination.

Organized in partnership with the Association Les Amis du Champ des Possibles, these interventions will take the form of several activities organized between October 14 and October 28. 
Ecotones is supported by the Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) on Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Communities and Cities at Concordia University, Haute École des Arts du Rhin (France), Sustainability Action Fund (SAF), Hexagram, Milieux Institute, and Concordia University Research Chair in Critical Practices in Materials and Materiality.
