During my time in Dortmund, I created a series of light-boxes featuring composite photographs of the ceilings of Künstlerhaus Dortmund’s exhibition spaces.

These composite images were printed onto transparences and encased in wood light-boxes, allowing their presentation to have a sculptural presence.

From July 15 to August 15, 2009, I took part in an artist project in Montreal, where 5 artists were invited to discuss and make work from the programming archives of an artist-run centre (Centre des arts actuels Skol).

This work, while directly tied to the architecture of the Künstlerhaus, provides a contemplative space for the viewer to occupy.

At first glance, the ceilings are presented from the perspective of the entrance of each of the exhibition spaces, almost as if the viewer fell to the ground upon entering the space (a viewpoint that can evoke the image of a daydream or an accident).

Quick and efficient are traits that have made Maria’s waxing clients loyal visitors to Michael’s.
