What would our lives be like if we lived up in the trees? Let these paper houses lead your mind there.
Michelle Purchase presents a cluster of quiet installations that blur the boundaries between natural and man-made space. The local artist’s softly illuminated paper houses, suspended from a handful of old trees in downtown parkettes, make light of how human ingenuity is destined to alter and evolve the landscapes within its reach.
Purchase will also have a collection of lithographs on display in Kitchener City Hall’s Rotunda Gallery during the month of November. These prints also explore imaginary spaces where nature and culture coexist, and non-traditional ideas of what comprises a home or community.
