The city has unveiled a new sculpture. Artist Giorgia Volpe has created “Entrelacs” in collaboration with the Ukrainian community of Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie. Discover this marvellous work of art in the Parc de l’Ukraine, at the corner of Rue de Bellechasse and 12e Avenue.
Inspired by traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs
To create this sculpture, Giorgia Volpe worked closely with the Ukrainian community, which has made the Rosemont neighbourhood its home since the 19th century. Entrelacs is located in front of the Saint Sophie Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. Inspired by the shape of the “pysanky,” the Ukrainian Easter egg, the work is made of white interlacing ribbons. Given the sculpture’s dynamic form, it offers different views from different angles. You can even go inside it.
Originally from Brazil, multidisciplinary artist Giorgia Volpe has been living in Québec for over 20 years.
