APRIL 2 – APRIL 17. 2003
OFF-SITE PROJECT PRESENTED BY STRIDE GALLERY AS PART OF M:ST PERFORMANCE ARTS FESTIVAL
Flat and immense, filled with secrets and incongruities, urban roofs are viewed as virgin territories or evolving landscapes that are open to experimentation and exploration. UNINVITED GUESTS will be an an urban intervention piece integrating two interdependent parts:1). the installation of a light and mobile dwelling on a rooftop located in downtown Calgary; and 2). a series of actions whereby the artists will disseminate plant seeds from this dwelling.
