Sous le grand arbre : racine, feuille et fleur

East Angus, Canada

Elisabeth Picard

Commission work for the new CHSLD of East Angus


Montréal, Canada, 2017-03-13 -

The new East Angus CHSLD (Centre d'hébergement de soins de longue durée) is presently one of the most modern of these facilities in Quebec. In addition of housing its main beneficiaries, long-term care residents, the centre offers a range of services such as nursing care, medical day centre, rehabilitation, pastoral services and leisure activities.

 

Sous le grand arbre was completed in January 2017 and produced in the context of the politique d’intégration des arts à l’architecture et à l’environnement du Québec, 1% program. The work is composed of numerous pieces that are integrated to the ceiling alcoves situated on 4 floors.

The work majestically welcomes visitors to the lobby, suggesting that the center and its staff play a protective role here like a big tree. The tree is a universal theme that expresses the life process, from the germinating seed to the flower that gives fruit. A parallel can be made between the evolution of tree and the human being. The big tree is also old and mature, and wise in its experience and knowledge, passing on values and protecting the community. Sous le grand arbre illustrates the scope of the tree’s role and its various components; racine, feuille
and fleur that are spread out on the ceilings of the other levels. This theme has a symbolic meaning as well because historically, it marks the importance of the pulp and paper industry in the East Angus municipality.
