SOROUJA MOLL | 365 DAYS | YOU WILL NEVER KNOW
On View: May 14 - July 23, 2022
365 Days: you will never know is a documentation of Moll’s year-long durational meditation on the way solitary experiences collided within the communal, liminal space she shared with strangers on her daily walks. It is presented through a multidisciplinary installation combining audio and video sequences of the shoreline, photographs of solitary figures standing by the water, and stones gathered from the beach to demarcate the passage of time—one for each day of the first year of the pandemic. The installation is intended to be an immersive experience, in which silhouettes of visitors stand in solidarity with the solitary figures in the projection and look towards the horizon together.
An Artist Talk featuring Sorouja Moll and coffee reception will be hosted at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery on Saturday, May 14, 2022, and 11 AM. Admission is free, all are welcome. Due to capacity limits pre-registration for this artist talk is encouraged.
