A City Renewal Project (2008)

A City Renewal Project was a site-specific collaborative installation that I worked on with Gabriel Reese (aka Specter) recreating a neighborhood full of abandoned storefronts inside a 5000 square foot warehouse at 39 Lisgar Avenue in Toronto. Using materials that we reclaimed from condo developments, the project focused on the state of decay within the city, renewing these dilapidated buildings as artistic monuments and documenting their history amidst the gentrified frenzy of urban change.
