Talking to Strangers is a show that explores, through use of oral history, physical theatre, and projected images the similarities and connections between the people of Newfoundland and Quebec, With text taken verbatim from conversations, this show plays with senses of humour and place and looks at how language - each uniquely distinctive - reveals the identity of both. Growing up a Newfoundlander of Cockney parentage and later moving to Quebec, Louise Moyes developed a fascination for accents, stories, and personal as well as contrasting world views. Louise has presented her work across Canada and in Europe.

Les Sedentaires Clandestins is a sculpture that inhabits the whole space in the exhibit room with its sounds and projected shadows. Continuing a series of installation and performance artworks using record players, obsolete objects that are anachronisms in today's culture of change and innovation, this artwork is entirely built around the circular movement inherent to turntable mechanisms: going around in circles may be both agonizing (in an adult's world) and amusing (in a child's world).

These large-scale paintings (5'x6') painting collages resist being read as abstracts or narrative, landscape or figure. Much of Paley's materials involve magazine photographs that are cut and manipulated to engulf the viewer into a world of chaotic thoughts and emotions. The densely coated surfaces seduce viewers into associations and narratives of their own making. This opening is part of SWARM, a city-wide celebration of artist run culture produced by PAARC.
