SHEENA HOSZKO - RED LIGHT MONUMENT
Red Light Monument: Floor Area of Café Cléopâtre Stages (500 square feet) is a site-specific project that pays homage to lower Sainte-Catherine street and how it has been affected by the development of the Quartier des Spectacles. Located next to Saint-Laurent metro, an area of red light measuring 500 square feet is projected on the ground by outdoor event lighting installed above. The dimension of the lit space is the combined surface area of the upstairs and downstairs stages of Café Cléopâtre, a 30-year old cabaret and strip club located on Sainte-Catherine Street, and one of the last remaining sex clubs in Montreal’s historic red-light district.
