site-specific installation



2000 - ARTWORKS festival of temporary site-specific installations, Kitchener, Canada

The text selected for this public artwork, refers to a quote by Queen Victoria where she expresses her disdain for the fledgling Women's Rights Movement. Positioned in Victoria Park, Kitchener, between the statue of Queen Victoria and the clock tower, the text has been revealed from under the grass to suggest an excavation of sentiments prevalent in the past, that remain pervasive today. The original quote is from 1870, the year the town of Berlin (now Kitchener) was first incorporated.


This project is part of an ongoing series of site-specific text based installations that explore the histories and memories of places. For another example of this aspect of my practice, refer to:
1387 (1999)
Think of England (2008)
