Artist Raymond Boisjoly will produce captured speech writing back: Toronto, a public installation on the south façade of The Power Plant as part of The Power Plant’s Summer 2012 group exhibition Tools for Conviviality (June 30 – August 26).
Boisjoly’s practice is largely text-based and operates as active speculation, articulating notions of belief through text and graphic presentation to reveal the provisional character of knowledge.
This new work is conceived around the visual recuperation of the name “Toronto” premised on its meaning and origin. It foregrounds language as a cultural practice and brings a concern for Aboriginal languages to bear on text-based strategies in contemporary art.
Join us at The Power Plant for the FREE opening reception on June 29, from 8-11pm.
captured speech writing back: Toronto will be on display from June 29 - August 26, 2012 on the exterior south facade of The Power Plant.
