over here over there : Alain Palement

Over at Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place, Alain Palement had a public installation titled, over here over there. The 12 murals installed on the floor bring an unusual and impossible perspective on various day to day rooms and locations. Spanning across the large galleria, hundreds of people walk across these pieces over the month of May.

It was interesting to see people’s reactions to the work, many walked by without skipping a beat, some skirted around the murals, making an effort not to step on them, and others viewed and interacted with the piece both viewing for different angles and actually looking at the work while they stood in the middle of it. The unique birds eye view to these everyday rooms definitely brought a different dynamic to the space and how one should view photography.
