Artist Statement:

    In Mean Time, two figures walk the neighbourhoods of Woodstock in Cape Town and the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. They are mirrored by their movement, by the architecture that surrounds them, and ultimately by the urban revitalization that is the totalizing framework of their activity. The work explores questions of how we speak of – and how we might mitigate – the power and control that are at the centre of gentrification and colonialism. The work features compositions by mira calix and Jesse Zubot.
