NEW TEMPORARY PUBLIC ART INSTALLATIONS
Listening to the Walls
Conceived as a contemporary ‘barn-raising’, LISTENING TO THE WALLS is a large-scale public participative ‘memory-raising‘ of a community’s oral-history around a specific site indicative of their shared and diverse zeitgeist.
The original concept was first commissioned by Burlington Public Art, which then premiered September 2019, in Lowville, Ontario.
Presently we are developing larger concepts and partnerships with anglophone and francophone cultural organisations across Ontario for 2022-23!
Symphony of Souls
Conceived as a contemporary ‘funerary rite’, SYMPHONY OF SOULS is a large-scale pan-spiritual celebration of life living and life lost in a post-pandemic world!
It is an acoustic work of sound, silence and materials which foster an interdisciplinary public creative process and exploration into the phenomenology of 'the restless and wandering spirit' facing an otherwise indifferent, if not uncertain, global reality.
The work can be created for an empty or abandoned theatre, concert hall, ruins, or an isolated geographic site-specific location.
LISTENING TO THE WALLS and SYMPHONY OF SOULS provide open and inclusive processes that any urban, rural, and remote community may participate in.
Our process achieves an original creative outcome resulting from its open and inclusive approach to a creative collaboration between people of a community and its inherent diversities.
Both artworks propose a relational examination of past and present histories through place-making, thereby rendering an informed and imaginative daring into a metaphoric beacon of a community's zeitgeist.
A lens through which the inter-diversities of interest, language, story, energy, memory, belief, background, etc., inclusive of their contradictions and paradoxes, get summoned with intent.
This commitment to create a collaborative site-specific artwork with others becomes a living, breathing experience of contemporary public art engagement and its temporarily.
