About Trajectoire No 7

This imposing outdoor sculpture was created by Quebec artist Claude Millette.
Six quadrangular beams of corten steel twist and fold resting on the ground.
‘Trajectoire’ means ‘trajectory’ in French and this sculpture does possess a sense of upward movement. Known for his imaginative abstract work, Millette plays with the viewer’s perception of balance and imbalance. Over time, the steel will naturally acquire a rust-coloured patina.

"I want to leave the impression that a conversation has begun at the heart of the material, but also between this material and its location". Claude Millette

Born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Millette studied at the École de sculpture de Saint-Jean-Port-Joli and apprenticed with sculptors Robert Poulin and Jordi Bonet. Millette's works have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
