Location of the mural on the panel
The Mgr. W.J. Conway Public Library, located on Irène Street in Edmundston, was built in 1966 and 1967 by renowned architect, artist and poet Roméo Savoie.
Roméo Savoie was born in 1928 in Moncton, New Brunswick. From 1959 to 1970, he worked as an architect in the province, including in Edmundston. He carried out and collaborated in the construction of some fifty buildings during his career. He is known as one of the builders of infrastructural development in Acadia with the creation of several art galleries, including Galerie Sans Nom and Galerie 12 in Moncton, as well as Galerie d’art Le Cavreau, formerly established in Edmundston.
Roméo Savoie has been the recipient of several awards, notably in 1999 with an honorary doctorate in visual arts from the Université de Moncton for a career devoted to contemporary painting. He is also the recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, New Brunswick and Quebec, as well as the Miller-Brittain Prize and the Strathbutler, to name a few. His works are part of the permanent collections of the Art Bank of the Canada and New Brunswick Council for the Arts, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Canadian Cultural Center at Paris, as well as the collection of the Université de Moncton and the University of New Brunswick.
The heritage building, Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur, testifies to its association with the brutalism architectural style resulting from the modern movement from 1950 to 1970. The style takes its name from the raw concrete.
The construction which is mainly in exposed concrete is widespread in the world of architecture strongly influenced by the French architect Le Corbusier, in the 20th century.
Concrete, due to its liquid nature, can take on any texture or pattern when poured over forms. The creation of Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur Church in Edmundston was strongly influenced by this movement and is an example of the dramatic potential of brutalism.
Roméo Savoie’s trips to Europe in the 1960s, notably the visit to concrete architecture in Finland, inspired the slender and angular shape of Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur, with its free-standing bell tower which bears witness to the historical function of the building. The building was converted in 2000 into a library, which houses the fifth largest collection in New Brunswick, with more than 47,000 documents, over an area of 1,654 square meters.

Série Super Food Summit Series
Projet virtuel et interactif / Virtual and interactive project
Early in the pandemic, Todd pivoted from his postponed installations and food performances to explore his Saskatchewan Maritime Museum narratives through lo-fi stop animation. As pandemic restrictions continue to alter our opportunities to travel, we have decided to collaborate on a “prairie/maritime food summit” of sorts.
These anecdotes will flesh out an imagined Saskatchewan/New Brunswick Chef Summit from our distant past that Gronsdahl will cobble together from rumour, myth and outright fabrication into a charming stop-animation story.
Follow our IG page and stories in the month of July to follow his progress and to view the official story of the chef’s summit dredged from the annals of time!
Au début de la pandémie, Todd a reporté ses installations et ses performances alimentaires pour explorer les récits du Musée maritime de la Saskatchewan par le biais d’animations stop-motion. Comme les restrictions liées à la pandémie continuent d’altérer nos possibilités de voyager, nous avons décidé de collaborer à une sorte de «sommet alimentaire prairies/maritimes».
Ces anecdotes viendront étoffer un sommet des chefs de la Saskatchewan et du Nouveau-Brunswick imaginé dans notre lointain passé et que Gronsdahl reconstituera à partir de rumeurs, de mythes et d’affabulations pour en faire une charmante histoire en stop animation.
Suivez notre page Instagram au mois de juillet pour suivre ses progrès et pour voir l’histoire officielle du sommet des chefs tirée des annales du temps!
