Understanding infinity through the body
The 7 Fingers
The 7 Fingers, a major figure in Montreal’s circus and performing arts scene, entrusted Daily with imagining a new permanent artwork for the roof of their new headquarters. Inspired by the group’s contemporary approach, Clothesline and Bicycle repurposes everyday objects to perform a mechanical circus act, backdropped by the city skyline.
Permanent installation since 2019
The art piece works with the mechanisms and pieces of a deconstructed bicycle: pedals transformed into a crank make a wheel waltz on a tightrope. It spins through a bigger one, like a flying diabolo, an acrobat, or a lion jumping into a flaming ring.
This permanent installation is located on the rooftop of the 7 Fingers circus company headquarters and visible from the street. Designed like a true circus number, it showcases both the architecture and the singular work of the 7 Fingers.
