Forbidden to Swim

Montreal, QC

Presented in a public space, Caroline Monnet’s installation Forbidden to Swim combines video, sculpture and sound in an effort to denounce the lack of access to safe drinking water in Canada’s indigenous communities. Critical of political unwillingness to address the situation, the artist aims to initiate a dialogue.

Installation presented on November 16, 2017 in partnership with OBORO + La SERRE – arts vivants, as part of POSSIBLES, a project featured in the Celebration of Montreal’s 375th Anniversary official programming.
