Map Making

MAP MAKING 

Communication Art Gallery 
209 Harbord Street, Toronto
May 11 - June 1, 2011

Born in Toronto, I made my home in nine other cities or towns from 2000-2010. Map Making featured photographs from each of these places and was produced, in part, through the process of unpacking: sifting through the chronicles of nomadic living.

The images included in the show were divided into ten years and three days.

In February 2011, I returned to Toronto with a performance project (presented by Buddies in Bad Times’ Rhubarb Festival) where I invited audiences to mark points of significance on a map of Toronto to help her relearn the city. I visited these locations over a three day period, making portraits of the places and meeting with strangers at each point. Photographs from nine of these locations anchored the exhibition.
