This book accompanies Michel Goulet’s work Rêver le nouveau monde, given by the city of Montreal to the citizens of Quebec city to mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of the province’s capital. Goulet’s work consists of 40 “chair-poems” in stainless steel, on which appear excerpts from poems written by Quebec poets since 1608. Four chairs, ornamented with bronze depictions of a house, a globe and the St. Lawrence River, complete the work. This finely illustrated volume includes a text by the artist and an essay by Louise Déry.
