Wanderer: (re)Marking will provide witness to the Lachine Canal National Historic Site in Montréal as an entity experienced through the artist’s persona of the Wanderer.
As this character, Douglas Scholes will perform site walks and in-situ acts of maintenance along the Canal in response to the environment: its histories and present realities as well as imaginative invocations of a future Canal. Beehives will be installed to promote the production of honey and wax, and beeswax sculptures will mark the Wanderer’s responsive acts, conjuring notions inherent in the Canal of habitat, workers and work. These notions will also be marked through responsive videos and photographs. In keeping with the Canal’s collaborative nature, Scholes has invited other artists to contribute music and sound pieces, a fictional narrative about the future Canal and an historic exploration into artistic activities on, in and around the Canal.
Come Experience the Canal with 'Wanderer' for the Night Solstice. Make sure to register in advance, space is limited!
