On a Sunnyside Mourning: Photo Series

On a Sunnyside Mourning was a site-specific performance installation we created for the Queen West Art Crawl, set against the backdrop of Lake Ontario and the Gardiner Expressway. This durational performance lasted 3 hours-long and was meant to be a tribute and mourning to Parkdale's eroded history.

I just re-discovered our archival photos last night and have put together a little photo series that encapsulates the entire performance (one of the strangest pieces I've been a part of).

Performers/Creators: Emma Baron, Annie Onyi Cheung, Adam Herst, John Loerchner, Laura Mendes, Gram Shmalz, Laura Smith
