KFB Poetry Lab + DesignTO presents
The Sky is Falling
Jan 17 – Jan 26 2020
Visual artist, designer and poet Jessica Hiemstra creates an abstracted paper sky on the ceiling of Toronto’s only all-poetry bookstore, Knife Fork Book. Using watercolour paper, thread and washes of hand-made Genzah watercolour paint, Hiemstra’s sky is one that is torn and sewn back together. This sky has tangled stitching, punctures, long dangling threads, and fragments of poetry sewn into it. Independent bookstores and especially those that specialize in theatre, poetry, music and art are becoming rarer and rarer. Knife Fork Book is an ephemeral place. It continues to exist because its sky continues to be held together by delicate threads.
Opening Reception 16 January 2020 6-8PM
As restrictions by the province and city slowly lift, Artscape is happy to announce that we are planning a safe and gradual reopening of our operations! Starting July 6, Artscape Youngplace will begin providing access to tenants, guests, and camp programming. Public access remains restricted at this time.
Thank you for your patience, we can’t wait to see you back at Artscape Youngplace!
