1800 Granville Street, Halifax
Ink on fabric, 45’ x 40’ April 2012
Shroud is a large scale, site specific work recording the facade of the 185 year old Macara-Barnstead Building in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This project documents the facade of this heritage property through the use of frottage- a direct rubbing technique that indexically records textures. 3 months after this public printing, the interior of the building was demolished to make room for the expansion of building behind it. What remains of this structure is a large scale monoprint that records the unique textures of this historic building.
Thank you to Arts Nova Scotia for supporting this project.
