John Dummett's "Remember we are all here" is a socially engaged examination of the language used in current debates of community and social integration. The installation provides an intimate space for a public mourning of the loss of shared values.
Histoires is Doucette's recent body of paintings depicting historical battles between opposing nations, exploring two alternative, imaginary outcomes. Doucette's paintings reverse the roles of conquerer and conquered and examine the destructive nature of war.
