The Route to Rosa
The Route to Rosa Alain-Martin Richard (2006)

Alain-Martin Richard was invited in the winter of 2006 by Fado and the DeLeon White Gallery to create the touching urban initiative and interactive installation The Route to Rosa in Toronto’s ethnic communities.

Alain-Martin Richard was invited in the winter of 2006 by Fado and the DeLeon White Gallery to create the touching urban initiative and interactive installation The Route to Rosa in Toronto’s ethnic communities. The artist set off in search of the cosmopolitan identity of about 50 inhabitants of the large Canadian city by way of a dialogue about hands. Along the way, the project evolved into a sojourn through the human landscape and a slow dialogue with the “other,” the stranger. The installation takes a tender approach to capture and then convey humanity’s path through the violence and poetry of the world. Avatar handled the technological development side of the interactive piece, which was presented in June 2006 in Toronto and then at Symposium international d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul in fall of the same year.
