The other show I attended was Carole Baillargeon in Diagonale’s own gallery on rue de Gaspé. It was absolutely awe-inspiring. It was giant strangely-shaped sculptures hanging, on wall, on the ground, made from corks sewn together. She even made cork dresses and did a photographic and video installation based on trying to swim while wearing these clothes. I was impressed.
