Description

‘Pro Tem’ is an ongoing series of works by Toronto artist Janine Miedzik. These structures mimic provisional signage and construction notices, offering a familiar yet unexpected visual experience. Vivid colours and graphic symbols create amplified versions of objects that are often found amidst everyday travels through the urban environment. Borrowing from — and grafting onto — the types of temporary, modular structures found along highways, in parking lots, and on construction sites, the works use the language of transitory spaces and their unique methods of way-finding, and provide an observation on, and temporary response to, the built environment.
