Heather Hart
Northern Oracle
January 25 - April 1, 2016

Curated by Ann MacDonald

Northern Oracle is an ambitious installation of a rooftop that seemingly emerges from the floor of the gallery. Referring back to the lack of physical space that could be owned by slaves, Hart’s rooftop will enable gallery visitors to consider the significance of having a place to call home. Visitors will be able to access the roof and further contemplate the value of this vantage point; something akin to a reflective moment on a mountainpeak. It is also a performative space where the idiom, “shout it from the rooftop” will be made literal. The installation will transform the gallery space and provide a milieu for socio-political conversations, community building and transformation.
