Bodies in Space- Final Project: Creative Component

The Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal

The Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal is one of Montreal’s most notable and touristic viewed buildings within the city. By the means of research and experiencing the space first hand, we attempted to re-create The Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal as a more welcoming space in which all bodies can be welcomed to equally. When analyzing the space, it becomes evident that the historical, social, political, and cultural contexts play a vital role in the lack of bodies that may chose to enter the space.

IMG_6112 2We were inspired to recreate both the exterior and interior of the church to be able to display it as a space that welcomes all bodies at the same time. We aimed to recreate this space by making a collage, using found images of different bodies and placing them onto larger images of the outside and inside of the church. Our creative component is best suited to demonstrate our argument because it displays a clear indication that we aimed to both challenge the reality of what the space represents and it shows the process of its transformation to represent a space where all bodies can be welcomed too.
