these are karen’s bread shoes. she walked in the shoes from her studio to the park. it was awkward walking. bread broke off and fell onto the sidewalk. at the park she took off the bread shoes and put them under a tree. she thought the birds would eat the bread shoes. the birds did not. she waited and watched a long time, then she picked up her bread shoes and walked back to the studio.

Book Launch of  THE PARK by Kate Hutchinson

One Day features five contemporary artists whose powerful visual artworks reflect upon our shared humanity.

Jennifer Smalls three sculptural pieces start with orphaned religious objects that she modifies and recontextualizes in order to examine the Charlie Hebdo shootings and theology’s place within society. Kate Hutchinson presents three photographs selected from her publication The Park. By documenting people using Montreal’s Mount Royal, Hutchinson develops a project about the communal nature of public places. Elena Willis imagines and depicts a schoolchild from the 1966 mining disaster in Aberfan, Wales and a premonitory dream told to Buddha by his wife Gopa. These two masterful photographs focus on individuals who are often forgotten when history is recounted.

Skawennatis machinimagraph Face-Off recreates the iconic photograph from the Oka Crisis. This production still from Skawennati’s celebrated TimeTraveller™ machinama continues her on-going drive to show Indigenous culture thriving in the present and future. Ten drawings are on view from karen elaine spencers headline series. Each piece contains a headline from the New York Times, the NYSE Composite Index and the date. These rapidly changing bits of information become permanent and timeless through the artist’s slow, labour intensive rendering of them in ink on paper.

“the word ‘home’ is an all-encompassing word that evokes all manner of emotional attachments.”
– karen elaine spencer

karen elaine spencer’s letters home is a remarkable, labour intensive body of work featuring hand-painted ink on Arches paper. spencer is well known for her text- based works and her site sensitive durational interventions in public space that question hierarchies. With this series, she explores home and what it means.
