Canada Pavilion | August 29 – November 25, 2012
Growing up in a rural prairie settlement north of Winnipeg, I had developed a deep sense of respect and admiration for the surrounding landscape. Those who structured and tended to the vast fields of produce generated a sense of 'home', nested within this sprawling land.
Now after years spent developing new relationships and contextual awareness within an urban framework, I find myself attempting to begin settling between the electricity exuded by an urban dwelling and the stillness found within a rural setting. With a new set of eyes my partner and I continue on a weekly migration to the southern Manitoba landscape, in an attempt to develop a relationship between a deteriorating homestead that feeds the urban and a growing urban that consumes the rural.
