Visual Arts, Multi/Interdisciplinary — Other, Behind-the-scenes
PullFreight is a project that has evolved since its inception, 4 years ago. I began by organizing and assembling a collection of pre-revolution Cuban photographs and the souvenirs, keepsakes, and treasure of deceased individuals. Using Cuban cigar boxes to house the mementos/ the personal effects - i conjured the members of the PullFreight family,
The personal effects of the forgotten, the unknown, and the anonymous - can be illustrative.
The project become installations presented in Winnipeg at Actual Gallery, then in Havana, at Espacio Abierto. For Nuit Blanche the iteration to be "revealed' is a 10 meter long, 3D Mural. The PullFreight Congress bookwork with Corey Timpson, will also be launched
