For his birthday, Facebook's Fabrice issued his readers a familiar challenge: "L'idée est simple et belle : occuper l'espace de Facebook avec de l'art et briser la monotonie de l'actualité politique, des selfies et du food porn.

Celui ou celle qui "aime/Like" ce statut se verra attribuer un artiste et publiera, s'il/elle le souhaite, une de ses œuvres accompagnée de ce texte sur son mur."



I liked his post, and I was given Yves Klein. I picked his 1957 canvas Monochrome bleu sans titre (IKB 81). Blue is my favourite colour, and so was Klein's--he even invented a shade of blue all his own, the ultramarine-dominated International Klein Blue. That this blue directly inspired Derek Jarman's Blue is an added plus.

The Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel is a linchpin of Vieux-Montréal, the building proper dating back to 1771, European inhabitation going back another century, and millennia of history of First Nations inhabitation before this.
