Restless Precinct

I’m excited to participate in Restless Precinct, a site specific, group exhibition and performance series developed by curatorial collective SUM°, which transforms Scarborough’s Guildwood Park through engagement with the landscape, architectural fragments and communities that populate and absent the site. Through multiple creative interventions, the following artists re-imagine the material and ideological foundations of The Guild, producing counter-histories of place, home, and memory. The exhibition will run Saturday May 17- Saturday June 14, 2014.

Participating artists, collectives and partners include:
Alana Bartol in collaboration with Community Arts Guild youth group, Alize Zorlutuna, Annie Onyi Cheung, Bonnie Devine, Brendan Fernandes, Camille Turner, Camal Pirbhai, Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Elise Rasmussen, Jamelie Hassan, KAPWA Collective, Victoria Freeman, First Story Toronto Bus Tour.

Field Trip Project at Idea Exchange

After touring in Japan, Field Trip Project debuts in Canada in an exhibition at Idea Exchange in Cambridge! Walking Chimes will be part of this exciting and huge group show.

A unique Canada-Japan cultural exchange and exhibition in honour of relief efforts related to the 2011 Tsunami.

Curation and exhibition/event coordination by Daisuke Takeya and Chie Kajiwara.

After the devastating Earthquake and Tsunami hit North Eastern Tohuku, Japan in March 2011, there was a tremendous outpouring of relief aid from across Japan and around the world, including new and gently used school supplies. The schools were overwhelmed and their needs were fulfilled many times over, making it necessary to recycle or discard redundant donations. Japanese born, Canadian-based artist and curator Daisuke Takeya managed to have a small number of the redundant elementary school backpacks set aside and conceived of the FIELD TRIP Project in which 70 artists (35 from Canada and 35 from Japan) were commissioned to transform the backpacks into works of art. He joined forces with Onagawa-based art teacher Chie Kajiwara to create a clever, beautiful and very portable travelling exhibition designed to engage communities in the affected areas in a new and positive way.

By displaying the artworks in unusual, very public venues, the exhibition has attracted many visitors who were directly affected by the Tsunami, and encouraged them to join others in their communities to participate in the inter-active components of the show. The artworks are made to be touched, opened and in some cases borrowed and worn by the audience. The exhibition completes its highly successful 18 month Japanese tour at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, and marks the 3rd anniversary of the Tsunami with its Canadian debut at Idea Exchange Design at Riverside.

The Field Trip Project includes 70 artists and designers: (35 from Japan and 35 from Canada)
