Common Box Project at Abecedarian Gallery, Denver, Colorado
My box, 'The Common Canadian Dissected, Eh?' is a three-drawer creation based on mythology and misconceptions about people living in the Great North. Participating in an exhibition which is physically very far away led to the idea of an introductory kit of ‘everyday’ Canadian objects for others to view – an anthropological examination of tongue-in-cheek Canuck 'common' culture.
