The projet 6261 Montréal project is a géographical and symbolic journey that give a réflexion on migrations of inhabitant movements of different origins ibased in Montreal.
What is a number ? To what, to whom are we giving a number ? A house, a street, an avenue, a cat, a prisoner, a refugee, an oprhan, an adoptable child.
My adoption number is 6261. In Montreal, there are long streets, avenues. How many inhabitants live at number 6261?
The outcome of my research is introduce to the public with an exhibit (Studio XX), a limited (100 ex.) publication of a Zine (B & D Press) and a non linear and interactive film iwith Korsakow (Studio XX)
