The Arctic Circle

Tonya Hart - Toronto, Canada


Even from a distance Scotiabank Nuit Blanche revellers will recognize the ubiquitous animals of the Arctic, but never like this before. On any other day or night the animals are like us: an opaque mass of cells fervently bound and blind to our own internal wonderment.

We are impervious to the natural phenomena unfettered within us. But on October 4th from dusk to dawn a window opens up to reveal the embedded phenomena within.

Come see a wolf wax and wane with the moon, a hare swallow a black hole, a fox flash lightning, an owl embody a swarm, and a polar bear emit the Aurora Borealis like breath.

Hart works in both two and three dimensions, in whatever media and scale she needs. She pursues ideas, often ideas about our relationship with nature.
