Hosted at College Park – 444 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5B 2H4
This piece represents that love is for all, and that we must all welcome inclusion. Spreading love is to manifest our creativity to empower our communities, all the racialized, colonized and marginalized people around the world. All together we send a message that love is the law.
We must welcome everyone who does good to save our planet by protecting forests, oceans, and earth. Part of the material of this piece is created with very old wood dating back to 1900, to collect this wood as an artist is a way to honour our ecosystem and to honour our forests through creative expression.
