My current show, Slow Movement is on display at QueenSpecific on 787 Queen Street West, Toronto. June 18 – July 7, 2010.
Slow Movement depicts a streetcar made of lace, suspended and seen within its own web of threads. The streetcar, both an iconic Toronto symbol and a slow method of traversing the city, dictates the way the streets are used and provides us with fascinating spiderlike networks overhead. The title also alludes to the growing international movement for recognizing the importance of slow work, labour and experience in reaction to the speed of contemporary consumer culture.
