documentation

Kunstverein Toronto presents Where Wild Flowers Grow, a new exhibition and publication by artist Maryse Larivière. The book compiles for the first time a selection of Larivière’s stories, poems and dialogues; these texts extend into the exhibition, translated as sculpture, collage, sound and performance. Three dialogues and monologues have been recorded on the occasion of the exhibition—Be Your Tears Wet?, read by Vera Frenkel and Liz Peterson, The Sun by Deragh Campbell, and Character Paintings by Dexter Storey. These recordings are played from sculptures placed within a cottage at King and Jameson, alongside other new works.
