SHED Unusual Migration
Ace Art, Winnipeg, Manitoba
SHED Unusual Migration fast-forwards to a hybridized future while glancing at a living past. For this exhibition, I used photography, video, and installation to gather, interpret and re-use structural elements from an abandoned farm shed within aceartinc.’s gallery space.
My two-year exploration began as a response to a foxtail colonization of forested land under suburban threat. I installed photo-based media in the shed and documented time, weather, birds, insects and animals in this fallow landscape.
In this exhibition, I negotiated my understanding of space and time to reconstruct shed experience. I invited viewers to move through fragments of history, memory and invention of something or someone having been, and of the places that animate and record that existence.
