Ceci N’est Pas Un Spectacle by Sam Meech

Ceci N’est Pas Un Spectacle uses the tradition of motif making in knitting as an absurdly reductive approach to documentary. The artist conducted over 40 interviews with people in downtown Montreal, as well as conducting visual research to map the connections and concerns in regards to the rapid change in the area. The result is an bizarre collage of logos, motifs as quotations that resists a simple coherent narrative or consensus.
