un/learning: reimagining the timber farmhouse
Exploring the complex histories of agrarian settlement in Ontario, an artist project by sean procyk invites local publics to work with him to reimagine the function of the traditional timber barn. Reflecting on how settlement and settler-colonialism have paved the way for regimes of land use that lead to disturbance-based ecologies, this program pulls resource management, environmental education, and suburban identity into conversation with each other. The central program activity will involve collectively assembling a pop-up presentation and learning space using reclaimed barn timbers.
