The exhibition Embrasements by Jean-Philippe Roy brings together sculptures made out of wooden beams, metal pedestals and carved wood. Some of them seem to come from construction sites while others refer more to the field of crafts. The small-scale interventions and the massive forms encourage the viewer to move to and away from the sculptures to better experience them.
