The Nest

Montreal, Canada

Jacek Jarnuszkiewicz

Montreal, Canada, 2011-11-28 - The project that Jacek proposes responds, in a conceptual form, to EDC’s* mission. Designed to be integrated into the architectural context of 150 Slater in Ottawa, it is also related to his ARBORESCENT SCULPTURES, which build, in a formal and symbolic mode, on the notion of vital force embodied by plant growth and result in the representation of a fundamental archetype: the tree of life.

In the present work, the idea of the tree is expressed by the two vertical elements evoking oversized blades of grass. Their large size makes us think of a tree that bears a third element, like a jewel case figuring the world: a complex structure composed of interlaced keys evoking progress, growth, and development. This structure, both geometric and fluid, symbolizes the nest – an entity that evokes a nourishing environment, a protected area, a safe environment, and a prospect for the future – all notions that are intrinsically linked to EDC’s activities.

On a strictly formal level, the proposed sculpture was to be in harmony with the spare, refined style of the architecture. The niche in which it was to be installed immediately imposed a soaring form with clean lines and an ability to produce visual surprise by initiating a dialogue with the geometry of the building. With its airborne elegance, the proposed sculpture heightens the impression of peaceful plenitude emanating from the building and strengthens, through a subtle visual play, the formal balance of the structure. Finally, the sculpture was to support and confirm the stated modernity of the architecture. Stainless steel, with its structural and visual qualities, seemed to be the perfect material to reach this objective.

*EDC provides solutions to businesses that want to export to or invest in foreign countries. In this sense, it is an essential cog in international trade and Canada’s economic development.
