Opening reception and artist talk Frilday February 24 at 5pm

With the life-size installation Home Away From Home, McCavour has recreated a living room space from a previous apartment. The hanging thread renderings of her furniture and belongings are layered in the gallery space as if in a new home. Part shrine or monument, the thread drawings remain as a trace, a recorded tribute to a room that once existed.

Amanda McCavour has a BFA from York University in Toronto. She has participated in residencies and presented her work on numerous occasions in Toronto.
