Merging Landscapes

2012, Venice Biennale, Italy

This work is part of the Migrating Landscapes Project, which was Canada’s entry at the Venice Biennale in 2012. The model embodies a specific moment when two distinct, imaginary landscapes are merging as a consequence of one’s migration and subsequently generating profound emotions. These profound emotions have been captured in a sculptural form and thus, symbolize the first home in Canada for its fabricator.

Merging Landscapes has been displayed in Canada and at the Canadian pavilion in Venice following an extensive, three phase competition held throughout the country.
