Pascale Girardin’s Four Seasons Sculpture Celebrates The Shifting Seasons
Luxury hospitality brand Four Seasons commissioned Pascale Girardin to create an original sculpture for the Four Seasons Hotel Montreal, located in the heart of the Golden Square Mile.
Titled Contemplation, the sculpture is suspended in the hotel’s open-air atrium. Made of lightweight aluminum and accented with 24-karat gold, it embodies the human stories, colourful details and connections found within the city. The sculpture is made up of more than 90 floral parts that hang through the atrium and, with its sense of movement, echoes the seasonal cycles of nature.
Though originally trained as a painter, Girardin has moved into ceramics and tableware, as well as sculpture. With a background in biology, her work often references our relationship with the natural world. As well as the recent unveiling of her work at the Four Seasons, she has won several awards and distinctions, with pieces in New York’s Saks Fifth Avenue and Clement Restaurant, as well as Printemps Paris.
