On February 22nd, the MOEG hosted the first of two shows in our new series Habitat, featuring artists Yasmine & Tamir.
The two CUE musicians were invited to participate in the project, where they each built a fully immersive original installation. Their goal was to provide a deeper look into their complete habitat of inspiration and vulnerability: each installation consisted consists of projections, a listening booth containing their music, interactive visual art, and an intimate live performance.
Check out Yasmine's "Scarborough Homecoming" Habitat below:
Yasmine on Scarborough Homecoming:
"If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's where I'm from. I find it important to share that through my art because it's a big part of who I am.
It was important for me to show the significance of driving at night in my installation because of how it has connected me to my experiences. The colour palette I chose really captures the essence of how these experiences looked from dusk till dawn.
I know that no matter where I go or how lost I get in the madness, Scarborough will always be home and those long night drives to "the ends" will forever mean everything to me."
Check out Tamir's "Stock Home Syndrome" Habitat below:
Tamir on "Stock Home Syndrome":
"This is an exhibit that dives into the hidden dark realities of being a child in suburbia.
Growing up in a household obsessed with maintaining the look of a happy family, I learned that everything isn't what it seems. Houses with trimmed lawns, extravagant gardens and beautiful exteriors may be home to a destructive warzone. This is an experiment; a snapshot of my experience."
Thank you for everyone who was in attendance to share this experience.
Habitat returns March 8th with Just John & Lola Bunz.
