What I am working on...

This is my contribution for Titles 6 called "How to Fold the Spit"--

I used a journal to look at the Leslieville Spit, a small narrow stretch of land in Toronto's east end composed of non-toxic construction debris and accidental wild life sanctuary. The man-made site is composed of strange shaped bits of wire and concrete as well as natural life: the area is home to 400 plant life species, 300 birds, 50 types of butterflies, reptiles, and mammals. My book is a sketch, an object, a map, and like 'the Spit' is also composed of non-toxic debris.






The project, begun in 2007, includes book-based works made by artists, architects, and designers. Titles is curated by the wayupwaydown collective (Yam Lau, Sunny Kerr, Tania Ursomarzo) to "set into motion the itinerant exhibition structures and maneuvers. It is the mandate of the collective to facilitate tenuous and fluid relations between exhibitions, artworks, and communities. The invitations to participants are extended on the basis of respect, which already entails artistic merits, friendship and trust."




Titles 6 will be on view at the Musee d'art de Joliette, Quebec in January. The show will travel to the Maclaren Art Centre in Barrie in fall 2010.
