About This Project

Into the Living



A fifteen-year survey exhibition comprised of elements from eight different installations.


“ I think she should bring several installations to the Mill gallery as well as her new work in progress for the third floor loft. After all, the stories are too interlinked for us to think of breaking them apart. They edge towards an interlocking of rooms/dwellings, landscapes. The interior/exterior spaces transcribe a living topography into Theatres of Memory.”

Maralynn Cherry, Curator, Visual Arts Centre of Clarington
