BEES!

This Nuit Blanche the White House Studios will be buzzing Friday and Saturday.

Symbol. Metaphor. Muse. Nuisance. Killer…
Buzzy, fuzzy, gatherer of pollen…
Fashioner of beeswax and honey…
Lynchpin of agrarian culture…
Hive-minded matriarchal exemplar…
Shrill shill of sugary breakfast cereals…

A great ally, a great danger – of all the insects is there another that occupies as large a place in our myths, imagination, and all too brutal realities. BEES have hypnotized, traumatized, terrorized, and tantalized children of all ages throughout the ages. These children grow up to be artists such as yourself. Now is the time for artists to plumb the depths of the sub-conscious and explore the deep-seeded fears, desires, and questions these haplo-diploid creatures so haplo-diplomatically evoke.

YOUR NEXT LIFE

Feb. 11th @ The White House

“Your Next Life” invited artists to record aspirations and surmise predictions for how one arrives there, if they arrive at all. Will life be better? Will it be worse? What entities and mediators exist within the subconscious and the conscious?

Ghost Holes are an unexplainable phenomena that
occur in areas of high paranormal activity. They
can be found in attics, alley ways, under bridges
or under beds. When the veil between worlds is
thinnest, these otherwise dark and lonely places
become activated and transformed. Mysterious
ghosts and supernatural entities have been recorded
opening doorways that can lead into other worlds,
other times and other dimensions.

Ghost Hole at the White House is a temporary portal
open to all souls to investigate

377 Lansdowne, Toronto, ON

NEWS and CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Several of The White House residents and friends are participating in the following performance event scheduled to go all day from noon to 11 pm, Saturday September 26th.

Poster By Alicia Nauta!

“The other in the everyday” as a concept posses a variety meanings. Each artist has taken a personal approach to this concept; Vanessa Rieger and Kevin Hainey approach the theme of theft and collection by providing a glimpse into a process that builds up in front of the viewer but begins at a Laundromat down the road, Rebecca Fin Simonetti poetically touches on the subject of insanity and addiction by building a “pill tent” that contains an “other self” ready to be let out at any moment, while Zoe Alexis-Abrams’ performance builds up a precarious structure that is erected only to be destroyed moments after its completion.

The notion of the ‘other’ can be seen as a difference and a presence, retaining a discourse of collective action, voyeurism, consciousness, cause and effect and even things like fate, luck, and fortune; interference or the requesting of interference with another entity or being. Peripheral Redundance: The Other In The Everyday will feature over 22 local artists at the DeLeon White Gallery, bringing visibility to an ever-changing subject in an ever-growing world.

The show is open to Toronto and vicinity residents on September 26th, 2009 beginning at 12pm (noon) and ending at 11PM.
The event will unfold idiosyncratically in the course of these 11 hours: The first 7 hours will contain more durational and object based works, while the following 4 hours will present more action and body based works.
