Marian’s installation EXCAVATION(…closer to where we began) is part of this year’s Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TODO). This work was originally commissioned by LabSpace and Sculpting New Reads and was shown as part of the long-stranding one-day event, Word on the Street held at Harbourfront Toronto in September 2017. Wihak was invited to respond to Lisa Richter’s new book of poetry “Closer to Where We Began” and it was an auspicious pairing that has enriched both artists’ work.
Opening Reception is Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 6-9pm
with Lisa Richter reading from her new book of poetry, Closer to Where We Began
The exhibition is being staged in collaboration with Pekota Design under the joint title ElevationExcavation as part of the 2018 Toronto Design Offsite Festival.
Pekota Design, 406 Pacific Avenue (in the Junction)
Exhibition runs from JANUARY 16th to 21st, 2018
