Location

Abbozzo Gallery 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 128 Toronto, ON

Division Complex

Courtney Thompson explores the complexities and limitations of human interconnectivity through sculptural and performative works. The suspended nylon forms strive for closeness within a constricting architecture, illustrating the invisible spaces between us which cannot be traversed or erased. Thompson's performative work further investigates a sensation of loneliness, and making a space for one's self in solitude.
