Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles, Galerie Trames

Thanks to Louise Lemieux Berube, the installation was invited to the Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles. 
You can go here to a slide show of set up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioZN0NjQrLc

I went to Montreal with Susan E. Middleton where we helped to mount the installation with Louise Lemieux Berube, Suzanne Chabot, the Executive Director of the MCCT, and Isabelle Sentenne and instructor and technician at the centre. 

First, removing all the shapes and sorting.



Laying them out where they'll go.


Establishing the location of the two main panels.

Mounting begins









6 hours later.......
