One of the cool cats, Ammer from #newcomersarelit took this photo of me while perfoming for our fundraiser last night.
I won't tell you which piece I was doing cause people (cough* #apollothechild ) from the national scene might be watching and we don't want to give away our secrets. Jaja. We reached full capacity at #nookcafe . Sorry for those we had to turn away. However, catch us tonight for round two of our fundraiser:)
"Street names are seldom used in Iqaluit. Instead everyone refers to houses by their house number and mine was House 411. The house in question had been on the market for over two years when I bought it and, soon-after, began tearing out the mouldy drywall and rotten floors. Throughout the renovations, I began to look forward to the objects that popped up along the way. Unwilling to discard these small findings, I started to collect the mundane memorabilia in a small cardboard box. As I approached the end of the renovations, I went back through the box and realized that the objects painted a picture that was incomplete yet telling, filled with both mystery and meaning, and marked by tender elements throughout. These items provided a glimpse not only of the infamous taxi driver parties but also of family life, love, and childhood. It became clear that House 411 had been more than a taxi driver residence and that the small objects that remained under floorboards and in cracks in the walls revealed clues to many storylines. Having almost been erased by a sea of blue paint, this series presents dusty reminders of those who lived there before me; tiny snapshots that tell part of a story, which spreads over more than thirty-five years." @Pascale_Arpin
Check out the whole series this friday June 30th at Happy Goat Roastery in Hintonburg for HOME (?) an Unhinged event
