19 Jan – 6 Feb 1982

“…[A]n installation on death and representation: on the representation of certain late-19th and early-20th century common martyrs, and also on the alienation one discovers in trying to apprehend the reality of these ‘model deaths’ amidst the romantic and reductive means which our culture has used to represent them…

…Physically, the installation consists of colour photographs and an audio tape, the photographs being a public registering of the work, the tape existing as a private dialogue, a stream-of-consciousness which is listened to under headphones on a park bench facing away from the photos.” Catalogue introduction – Tim Guest / A Space Toronto
