The quilt-like art installtions can be found along a 1.5 km stretch of Fleury Street, creating a striking visual and brightening up daily life in the area. Due to their immensity, the structures become visual markers that form a unifying narrative and interactive route.
Each “Courtepointe” is made of nearly 300 brightly coloured interactive cubes. The colours intrigue the people walking by, inviting them to create abstract designs. What is more, thanks to the help of a committee of historians, each quilt offers historic anecdotes about the neighbourhood. The possibility of changing the quilts and making them their own, along with the historic components, create a sense of belonging to the area and strengthen community spirit.
