Titanic The Ohio R (2012)

While Avatar was off on vacation in the summer of 2012, its facilities were hijacked by a young Quebec City collective born out of the merger of On est tu heureux hen. and OscarIndiaRomeo.

While Avatar was off on vacation in the summer of 2012, its facilities were hijacked by a young Quebec City collective born out of the merger of On est tu heureux hen. and OscarIndiaRomeo. It created a provocative installation of cardboard tunnels entitled Titanic in which audiences were subjected to a multitude of humorous or misleading encounters, both audioelectronic and other. The collective, having also seized Avatar’s communications, proceeded to commandeer its website and organize a festive launch. Thus, Avatar staff, directors, and managers only learned of the installation infesting their facilities when the public did. A sure-fire hit was guaranteed.

 

Two prolific Quebec City artists stood up for them. These artists have artistic approaches. They’re notably oppressed by every pressing issue, which includes equalization (avant-garde) and shantytowns. Ever see those plastic bottles filled with water they stick through ceilings in favelas to let the light in? (After the Ohio R.)
