Parc Jean-Drapeau
Oh! Homme

Oh! Homme

This art work, which is a creation of Yvette Bisson, was displayed at the Botanical Gardens in 1964, Place des Arts in 1967 and then at Man and His World in 1971. The work has never left Île Sainte‑Hélène since.

Originally, the work was composed of two sculptures. Its female counterpart, Oh! Femme, disappeared in the 1970s and the artist had no plans to recreate it.

The lower body is designed as a simple support, while the upper body features a hollowed out triangular shape and is enclosed on one side by the contour of an arm. The repeated shapes of the head and body create the effect of volume and movement.

Schedule

All year 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
