Performance Art

This contemporary work attempts to disrupt your evening with some playful intervention. It is an interactive kinetic soft sculpture; this performance is a roving participatory project with Torontonians. The artist will roam the streets and sidewalks - arms outstretched doling out pleasant hugs to curious passers-by. This new colorful piece touches on furry culture and toy sculptural drag, but also reminds us of childhood innocence and our strong emotional attachment to our own special stuffed animal. The artist is also interested in questioning the comfortable trappings of our North American consumerist culture with this mascot-like work.

Coral's art casts magical spells on audiences enabling them to understand that fantastical realities can happen at any given moment.
