143 Sherbrook Street   

This 2017 unsigned rendering was by Ilana Pichon with her then assistant Allison James. Sponsorship was by Wall to Wall Mural and Cullture Festival, Synonym Art Consultation and Graffiti Arts Programming. It was painted over with a new Mural for a new tenant in 2022.
Original notes follow:===

The full Mural can only be viewed when the store is closed. The second and third section is on a track which acts as a gate that rolls in opposite directions.

Ilana Pichon (Quebec City): ''Fragments' is a geometric Mural designed for emk clothing's facade which reflects the in situ through multiple pieces of West Broadway's quarter: I was inspired by the singular architecture, Emk Clothing's activity with fabrics and the daily movement of the two sliding doors. First of all, going around I was impressed by the peacefulness atmosphere and how time seemed suspended in the neighbourhood. I also noticed the distinctive architecture with all these small houses and their rooftops ornaments. As the main line of my practice is to work with in situ, I choose to create an artwork with these triangular rooves shapes and build the four patterns based on some particular real corner rooves ornaments. Reflecting this time idea, slowness and shapes tacks was also meaningful regardless to Erin's practice as she creates handmade colourful clothes one by one. Side by side, these four rocks show a slow rotation of shapes and patterns which support this idea of movement also underlined by the sliding doors various position. Finally, choosing four different tones for the rocks was a way to symbolize everyone can bring its significant contribution to make things go further."
