June 26-30, 2006
Location Zavitz Gallery, University of Guelph

Artists: Kit Malo & Kim Kielhofner Montreal

Kit Malo and Kim Kielhofner have proposed an interactive piece that uses absolutely every square inch of wall to create “a landscape/ecosystem wherein little beasts can happily exist in both day and night settings.” Through the use of giant rolls of paper or perhaps painting directly on the walls, the two hope to create a landscape that is both fantastical as well as somewhat recognizable. This geography will cover the entire gallery space and through the use of specific lighting, as well as projectors and music, give the viewer a sense of a certain familiarity within a new ecosystem yet to be played with. By creating an intimate and interactive atmosphere for the participant, the artists hope that the sense of the room will make people feel comfortable enough to draw their own additions to our land, and add them as they see fit
