A Vertical City Goes Both Ways

Solo exhibition at Access Gallery, curated by Shaun Dacey, Oct.26, 2012 – Jan.12, 2013.

A version of this larger wall piece, False Creek Midden, also shown in Beside Yourself curated by Marina Roy at the AHVA Gallery, UBC, October 22 to November 15, 2014

The work in this show is a response to the material buried beneath Vancouver’s streets unearthed during construction and real estate development. Sites such as the development above the so-called “Marpole Midden,” or Cesnam, and an early Vancouver municipal dumpsite near the Olympic Village are key sources.
