August 2018 I participated remotely in Re-excavations exhibition in CDEx UQAM, Montreal. The exhibition is a continuation of the research project, which started In Helsinki 2017 with DFA Shoji Kato and DFA Paul Landon. The participants work with certain place together, creating individual artworks for the exhibition.
Re-excavation reflects on archaeological methods of unearthing and digging up. With this exhibition project it is the urban landscape that is re-dug up. The present and past city is reconsidered, what has been found repurposed for its future. Urban space is uncovered, expanded and upturned, interpreted as an abstract diagram, as material residue, as rumours of past usages and activities, as oral accounts and lived experience.
