Coral, a public art installation in a shopping mall

Showcased at the Montreal Eaton Centre by Pauline Loctin

Invited by the Montreal Eaton Centre as part of their “Une vitrine sur l'art” initiative, paper sculptor, Pauline Loctin, is proud to unveil Coral, a three-dimensional paper installation. Showcased at the Eaton Centre, on the Sainte-Catherine Street level, Coral will be exhibited from August 9 to October 28.

Made entirely by hand, the artist spent over 4 months folding and sculpting the paper. The result is a work of 20 feet x 20 feet, comprised of more than 200 sheets. The piece pays tribute to marine life, highlighting the vulnerability of the environment and the limits of natural resources and life forms. Using paper and extensive colour research, she evokes the unique, essential biodiversity of coral reefs, which protect the ocean wildlife worldwide. 

Pauline Loctin (also known as Miss Cloudy) is a paper sculptor who was born in central France in 1985. Based in Montreal for more than a decade now, she practices paper folding, among other things. She creates spaces for genuine human exchanges, where nature, culture, and humanity intersect and never depart from one another, having worked for international institutions and brands as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Four Seasons, Holt Renfrew, Marie Saint Pierre, Maison Simons, Nespresso, COS, and Veuve Clicquot.
