March 24th to May 7th, 2017

Gallery is open: Wednesday to Sunday, 12 – 6 pm

How to Remember contains a range of documentation that combines graphic illustration, knitting, book-making, embroidery, journaling and poetry. The artists have formed creative records that serve as a kind of memory. Their work documents time embedded for example, in acts of gentrification on one’s neighbourhood or in transitional states of mental health—these at times imperceptible changes that, without notation, become difficult to track.

Gallery is open: Tuesday–Saturday, 12–5pm

Waiting rooms encourage you to be still, quiet, patient and contemplative. The stillness is not for your privacy. Other bodies may or may not be present. The furnishings and décor remain non-descript, maybe a little kitsch, certainly inconsequential. They’ve absorbed the energies of all the bodies that have passed through, witnessing, acknowledging a spectrum of states of waiting. Your company includes magazines from several years ago, a water cooler without cups, averting eye contact and a mutual confirmation not to inquire as to the purpose of the other person’s presence.
