A Vulnerable Existence ... What Goes and What Remains

Ayokah


These assembled images create a visual dialogue between the human figure—represented by statues photographed throughout the city—and the environments in which they have been digitally relocated. The backgrounds—broken shapes found in demolition sites and weathered laneways of Toronto—interact with the statues and seem to echo their form. The subject matter of these photographs explores human vulnerability and the passing of time. Photography by Ayokah, photomontage assembled in collaboration with curator Deborah Harris.
