A work by Manatavo
Bóglò Glooïk is a playful and evocative exploration of communication that invites us to explore the Président-Kennedy building’s surprising underground network. Small, oddly shaped characters live their chaotic lives there; sometimes they try to express themselves in an invented language. You can call them with your cell phone, though the soundtrack doesn’t always make it easy to understand them. The project is a funny and fantastical test of your logical faculties: a situation in which you must come to terms with the absurd if you want to connect with another being.
Presented on the façade of Président-Kennedy pavillon of UQAM from August 30 to October 15, 2017, as part of KM3.
