Description

Tings Chak, Felix Kalmenson, and the collective of Faraz Anoushahpour, Parastoo Anoushahpour and Ryan Ferko
Curated by Farah Yusuf

‘of movement and dwelling’ explores the visible and invisible architectures that shape one’s sense of place through the lens of mobility. The exhibition proposes that a dwelling is more than a physical structure used for the bounding and occupying of space—its construction and habitation are invested with social and symbolic meaning. Just as we inhabit a place, it inhabits us. It is by considering the idea of home through the experience of displacement that we may gain insight into the political, economic, territorial, cultural and social forces that exert influence on our precarity or rootedness within any place.

Each of the artists featured in the exhibition present an architectural trace of mobility wherein they confront the idea of home as an affective framework and built structure existing within and through the governance of the state. Together these works reveal that the idea of home is more than a neutral sum of its parts.

This project is generously supported by the Ontario Arts Council’s Culturally Diverse Curatorial Projects grant.
