Move, Make & Write (My Home)

Tue November 15, 2022 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Award-winning multidisciplinary artist, writer, and educator Esther Maloney invites you to let your body engage somatically with the work in the special exhibition Karine Giboulo: Housewarming through movement, breath, and play. Translate your experience onto the page by crafting your own Mad Libs-style poem, reflecting on concepts of home, work, consumerism, and globalization.

Maloney is a writer, filmmaker, and visual artist. She is founding director of Illumine Media, a community-based youth film project. Her animated short, Another World, based on a poem written to her son, is winning laurels at film festivals internationally. Her writing has appeared in the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail.

About the Exhibition

Enter a world at once familiar and uncanny. Montreal-based artist Karine Giboulo invites visitors into an immersive reimagining of her home. Brought to life by over 500 miniature polymer clay figures, this is no ordinary house. Born of the COVID-19 pandemic, Housewarming is a sculpted documentary of individual and collective experiences grounded in current events. The colourful dioramas furnishing each room prompt reflection about the challenges we face as a society, including connectedness and isolation, aging and care, labour and consumerism, the climate crisis, food insecurity, and housing instability.
