This past week I was invited to show the first, albeit interim, Collateral Damage exhibition at the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention Conference in Dartmouth Nova Scotia. Alderney Landing Cultural Conference Centre is situated at a ferry terminal that connects Halifax with Dartmouth and is also home to retail outlets and a community market as well as The Craig Gallery. The Collateral Damage exhibition was installed near the Craig Gallery on a public access wall. It was very important for me to have the exhibition open to public that were passing by.
The exhibition proved to be a powerful invitation into a dialogue on suicide.
If you have viewed the exhibition, please leave a comment to let me know what you thought about it.
The exhibition will remain at The Craig Gallery until November 15th.
Over the next two weeks, I will be adding one complete image with text each day to the blog. This will be the virtual exhibition. Be sure to stop by everyday to see the images and read the narrative that was taken from the original email submissions.
