STAGED

April 25–May 20, 2007
PATRICK MIKHAIL GALLERY
Loop Gallery 1174 Queen Street West St. W

The Staged project documents performative
spaces
directed towards the spectator seating area. Each
respective environment is devoid of viewers,
suggesting the pregnant moment before an
anticipated
spectacle. The weighty absence of an audience
altogether nevertheless insinuates their presence,
as
well as invites the viewer to contemplate the
architectural aspects of each setting. The
inversion of
the traditional role of actor-as-exhibitionist and
audience
as voyeur intimates the subjective and constructed
nature inherent in all photographs.
