Evolo Condos in Montreal
François Cardinal writes about a spiky sculpture by Robert Roussil neglected on the end of the Silo #5 pier. He says it’s not visible from elsewhere but I know I’ve spotted it there before.

It’s called Windmill Point, the downstream end of the wharf where Silo #5 is located.
Thank God the Floralies are gone. I always resented the way they made the only quiet and green corner of the Old Port off limits.
Was that the Floralies or the thing with the sculpted gardens – Mosaiculture? I thought the Floralies was over on the Expo islands in the 1980s – there’s still a thing called the Jardins des Floralies over there.
Ah, dammit, the beers are interfering with my rememberability. I think the Floralies preceded Mosaicultures as the occupants of the site. The gc.ca does have a pretty nice web site about the site though: http://www.pointedumoulin.ca/home
The Roussil sculpture reminds of another similar outdoor piece adorning the Port of Montreal headquarters building out on Cite du Havre. Similarly decayed metal, but I think it’s by a different artist. I’ll do a search once I’ve slept the beers off.
Cardinal wrote a newer entry saying the sculpture used to be at the corner of Beaver Hall Hill and Saint-Antoine and appeared on a Voivod record cover back in 1989.
