The sculpture BleuCycle reflects the city-dweller's special relationship with the element of water. A father standing beside his bicycle observes and holds the hand of his daughter as she leans towards a pool of water. This father-daughter bond suggests a protective attitude, similar to our responsibilities towards the needs of water, the planet and the living things that inhabit it. The bicycle evokes our ability to properly manage our urban environment, such as the quality of the air and the fluidity of circulation within in.

The sculpture BleuCycle was presented in Montreal on Sherbrooke Street from February 2013 to October 2016. The building "Le Tadoussac", in front of which it was exhibited was sold, the owner of the art work decided to keep its sculpture and to donate it to the Musée d'art Contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul, due to the artistic effervescence of this city and the excellent reputation of this museum in the museum community. The sculpture was installed in Baie-Saint-Paul in May 2017 alongside the street leading to the new Hospital, near the Town Hall, and on the edge of the bicycle path : a magnificent place in the strategic and lively heart of this cosy town ! The official inauguration of BleuCycle took place on June 24, 2017, in the presence of the dignitaries of the city, the donor, as well as many people, not forgetting the children's parade on the decorated bikes!
