Showcased at the Montreal Eaton Centre, from August 9 to October 28
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 level, Coral will be exhibited from August 9 to October 28. Having previously collaborated with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Grands Ballets Canadiens, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Four Seasons, Wynwood’s Art Basel Miami fair, and Holt Renfrew, Pauline Loctin is thrilled to present her first public art installation.
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.
The Montreal Eaton Centre has long been a key part of the city’s landscape, and it’s proud to now become the newest downtown art showcase. Year-round, you’ll be able to discover various artists who will present their own personal take on the different seasonal trends.
About Pauline Loctin
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. Designing and sculpting paper costumes and murals, Pauline Loctin reaches various audiences with her work, which is defined by extensive colour research and a study of the different types of paper, their texture, their potential. By exploring the multiple possibilities offered by paper—which can be painted, folded, wrinkled, glued — she reveals a medium that can be much more than a visual experience. Pauline Loctin creates spaces for genuine human exchanges, where nature, culture and humanity intersect and never depart from one another. Her love of colour, motifs and superimpositions, as well as her interest in light and shadows, have led her to work for such international institutions and brands as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Grands Ballets Canadiens, Four Seasons, Holt Renfrew, Marie Saint Pierre, Maison Simons, Nespresso, COS, and Veuve Clicquot.
