Title: ...as if a forest. "The work is "packaged" in a 10 step set of nonsensical directions generated by a fictional company. The directions explain how to create a sound experience of a forest. I begin the work with a performance in front of an audience on the first day of the show." Dmitry Strakovsky

"For the The Hive-Dress , as in the first project (Les pensees-matiere) , we undertook the collection of spontaneous thoughts, written on thin stripes of paper.... AS in our previous work, these thoughts were sewn one after the other on a n indefinite ribbon, made from dyed scrap fabric coming from these same industries , pursuing our ritual of transforming thought into vibrant material." Audy and Faubert

Children's Tears Laid Out to Dry continues Naufús Figueroa's exploration into the troubled history of his birthplace, translated through the poetry of Québécois author Anne Hébert. In her work Hébert often describes terror stricken and unhappy children. For Figueroa her poetry reflects the mournfulness of children during the Guatemalan Civil War, where the children of activists and guerrillas would be kidnapped to be killed or adopted out to military families in an attempt to destroy the "bad seed". Vancouver based artist, Barry Doupe collaborates in this installation with a series of animations.

Tipi-Aalaya is a task-oriented performance incorporating elements of ritual and repetition set within a spoken-word soundscape. Drawing on her experience as a child of Fijian Indian and European parents growing up in New Zealand, and mistaken for a North American Indian, Singh addresses issues of identity, culture, otherness, and fusion. Her performance is followed by an installation that remains as a visual metaphor for her performative contemplations.
