Dédale et Icare

Things to do at the Parc Public Art

The complete english version will be available soon.

Située dans les paddocks du circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, l'oeuvre Dédale et Icare de Mathieu Lévesque est une sculpture composée de tracés de formes géométriques qui semblent traverser l'étage supérieur du bâtiment.

Elle évoque notamment des liens avec le sport automobile et le mythique duo père-fils de Dédale et Icare. L'oeuvre signalétique offrira également une expérience à échelle humaine qui permettra de la découvrir autrement et de l'apprécier sous d'autres points de vue en lien avec l'architecture et le paysage

Two STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions:
