Oral Chamber (Cadmus' Humunculi) 2008
A Space Gallery, Toronto
mixed media & video installation
Oral Chamber (Cadmus' Humunculi) is one manifestation of an ongoing series titled the Oral Fixations Project. Teeth and butterfly cocoons are cast as protagonists in a microcosmic fantasy world. Through a series of interconnecting vignettes, the miniaturaized anthropormorphic figures participate in a narrative of quiet and muted violence that is meant to be at once uneasy and comical.
