Maison de la culture de Côte-des-Neiges
In Pompano Beach, Florida lies Breezy Hill RV Resort, a 4-block trailer park where Québécois retirees migrate every year, fleeing the bitter winter in Canada. Their taste and dreams formed by the consumption of American culture and ideals; carefree living, surrounded by leisure and fun. Those who flock to Breezy Hill have created their own living utopia. Seen from an outsider looking in, the work questions notions of collective identity, cultural patrimony, the leisure class, aesthetics, and who represents “the other”. As a lifestyle and community that is not being replaced by a younger generation, the work memorializes an “endangered species”, one that is an integral part of Quebec’s identity—aiming to foster an insight into a culture and people that remain uniquely foreign to me.
