Tiny Homes: Everyone Is Downsizing, WIAprojects@1313/The Window Box Gallery



ARTIFACTS (Pam Patterson & Leena Raudvee) ever cognizant of gender politics and cultural mores, engages in deconstructing various contemporary societal issues by exploring women’s bodies across speculative edges and in liminal spaces. Here, in Tiny Homes, ARTIFACTS playfully references the contemporary tiny homes movement but here the “homes” are uninhabitable. The installation speaks to real (and oftimes painful) issues for many of Toronto’s seniors: the lack of accessible affordable housing and the fear of losing, and the need to discard, a lifetime of belongings.

The Window Box Gallery is open during Gallery 1313 hours - Wednesday – Sunday, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm , 1313 Queen Street West Toronto, ON. 

Tiny Homes opens August 1 and runs until Sept 30 2018.
