Wandering Ground: Finding Paths (2018)

Wandering Ground: Finding Paths (2018) was a multi-disciplinary exhibition featuring the work of 4 artists, Yuling Chen, leaf jerlefia, Aaron Robert Moore and Justyna Werbel. Exhibited in 2 iterations, the works explored social identity through anecdotal histories, diaspora and metaphor. From hysterical modernization to pop culture activism, the works within the exhibition looked closely at coping mechanisms and the dream worlds that mirror dangerous power structures.

The works produced were a response to OCAD U’s Global Experience Project, a trailblazing initiative designed to explore and build Canada’s prominence in global communities of art and culture. This nomadic residency program selected 4 artists to mentor under renowned British filmmaker, Isaac Julien, CBE, culminating experiences in Toronto, New York and London, England.
