Parc Jean-Drapeau
Signe solaire

Signe solaire

Designed by Jean Le Fébure for Canada's Centennial exhibition in Toronto in 1967, the work was later loaned to the Man and His World exhibition. This sculpture is one of the few sculptural works by this artist who was primarily known as a painter and muralist.

In collaboration with a team of chemists at the Saclay nuclear centre in France, Le Fébure designed a new fibreglass‑based material into which he amalgamated aggregates of stone and metal with epoxy and polyesters.

The artist concocted Signe solaire with this material by adding bronze filings. The work is designed to reflect the reality of a contemporary world through the use of cutting‑edge production techniques.

Schedule

All year 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Due to enhancement and development work in the south sector of Île Sainte‑Hélène (PAMV), this art work has been temporarily stored on Île Notre‑Dame in the Floralies Gardens. The City of Montréal's Public Art Bureau (BAP) has proceed to the removal of the art piece.

The BAP currently works, in collaboration with the Société du parc Jean‑Drapeau, on a relocation and enhancing plan. The BAP will restore the art piece, in partnership with the artist, before its reinstallation in spring 2019.
