The crow and salmon live everywhere - Traversal residency of Peter Morin and Ayumi Goto

 —  —

Trinity Square Video, 121-401 Richmond St, Toronto

A multi-layered and immersive experience by Ayumi Goto, Peter Morin, Parmela Attariwala, Immony Men, Patricio Davila, Justine Woods, José Andrés Mora, Emily Fitzpatrick, Janell Morin, and Kyoko Goto. The Crow and Salmon Live Everywhere is a creative convergence of performance, virtual reality, motion capture, and sound, combined to make a space for your body to become a salmon or a crow. This collective work is an homage to the Crow and Salmon who teach us to imagine beyond human measures. This built immersive environment generates a new radically shared language of fabricated and assembled worlds and meanings. The artwork raises questions about the nature of movement, bodies, performance, and how these states recombine and activate new desire lines and ways of knowing. https://www.trinitysquarevideo.com/traversal-residency-peter-morin-and-ayumi-goto/ Gallery is open Tues-Sun, 12-5. *To visit the exhibit, please email: emily@trinitysquarevideo.com proof of vaccine required
