Enclosure (UN/NECESSARY INTERVENTIONS), 1985, The Power Plant, Toronto

Enclosure (UN/NECESSARY INTERVENTIONS)  - Paradise – a metaphor for an idealized place, both as a construct of a physical as well as a spiritual space, contains the notion of an enclosure. In this piece I have overlaid the idea of an enclosure with a form alluding to an island. Both offer the potential for seclusion. Acknowledging the nature of the site and in an attempt to ground these forms in reality, I have superimposed what might be interpreted as an urban grid. A grid articulated as simple punctuations in space, predisposed to resist fusion with its surroundings.
