About the artist. Richard Purdy was born in 1953 in Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. In 1991, he and François Hébert formed an artistic collaboration called Les Industries Perdues and, together, they created 19 public artworks. 

Purdy likes to surprise, to play with ambiguities and illusions and to subvert disciplines by presenting different points of view of the same subject. "Mon but n'est pas de créer du nouveau, mais de découvrir ce qui a été oublié".
