The series has been arranged in collaboration with POP Montréal.
The installation features phrases from Cohen’s poems and songs, projected in both French and English.
This unique and ephemeral work will be visible for five nights only, starting on November 7, the first anniversary of Cohen’s death, and going until November 11.
