exhibition in-person

“…becoming is always becoming with – in a contact zone where the outcome, where who is in the world, is at stake.”

– Donna Haraway,When Species Meet

“In my traverse along a circuit between home and studio in Toronto, with its infra-thin natural barrier, I have been provided with much fodder for my work. Through disruption of materiality, I explore the connections between human and non-human largely in the built environment. Closely observed location and sound circulate within the work, alluding to multiple scales of geography and time.

This exhibit is a rework/remount of my 2019 Halifax exhibition ‘Dirty Sweep’ and will take place in my Toronto studio. My 400 sq ft studio will have canted sweeps or cots inspired by Konstantin Melnikov’s ‘Sleeping Pavilion’ (1929). These supports will hold an updated and rotating selection of recombinant objects from the original exhibit. A separate room will present related video and sound work.”
