LIFE IN FLIGHT
March 8 - April 14, 2017
Curated by Tamara Toledo
The exhibition alludes to the passing of time and how immigrants constantly carry their past within them. Through photography, video, and digital drawing the artists inhabit movement, expose their past through place and explore the immediacy of time as a tool to address their survival.
For the participating artists, it is a constant struggle to inhabit the present, to conquer spaces and to leave their past behind. An arrival is never completely accomplished and a departure is forever yearned. The search for a place is persistent and unsettling. Through images and sound the artists in Life In Flight expose a state common to many that have made Toronto their home.
The Toronto-based artists explore time as fluctuating from past to present and back, never sequentially, erratic and turbulent, yet delicate and quiet at times. They base their explorations on absence, loss and the fluidity of time as part of a journey experienced through intervals of continual cycles, blurring the lines between what comes first and how things end. They capture a state of relentlessness, confusion and longing all the while encapsulating the beauty and richness within those who are in flight.
Artists: Laura Barrón, Guillermina Buzio, Jorge Lozano, Susana Reisman and Lorena Salomé
