Paraguayan Sea street views (2017-2018 - ongoing installation). Paraguayan Sea / Mer paraguayenne is a text intervention in public space by Montreal visual artist Andrew Forster in collaboration with the Montreal poet Erín Moure. The yellow band of text wraps around the ground floor of Concordia University’s EV (Engineering and Visual Arts) Building, facing Ste-Catherine street and McKay street in downtown Montreal. This graphic and typographic public artwork in a mix of three languages—French, English and Guaraní—relays Moure’s poetic translation into Frenglish and Guaraní of the novela in Portunhol and Guaraní, Mar Paraguayo, by Brazilian writer Wilson Bueno. The font ('Iguana') is designed specifically for this project.
