 Statement  The Divadale Project x PA System:  The PA System intervened on every floor of the 82 Divadale house.  Emptied of the heartbeat from life-long collections, daily dusting and familiar voices, 82 Divadale   is cold and impersonal like a storage unit.   Upper Floor:  E146 is PA System’s storage unit number: their only permanent address. It has been woven in   situ with vintage tapestry yarn from Toronto’s former Paton’s and Baldwin factory.   Hording is an installation comprised of small drawings of the keepsakes the artists have   attempted to remember that are stored in their E146 storage unit.   Take Twice Daily is hand woven, using a plain weave-leno structure to create transparent blocks   of text. It is an evolving work, which currently lists 20 side effects of the antidepressant Effexor,   and will grow to list 71 side effects.   Basement:  IOU, a multi-part installation of weaving, paint, tea light candles, and papier-mache elderly feet, is   part of a series of works that uses the casual acronym IOU to speak about owing what is difficult   to quantify: time, thoughtfulness, appreciation.   Main Floor:  Blue Hole is a multi-surface wall painting, which in some rooms interacts with a painted and   routered floor. At current state, the painting is subdivided per room and storey. The painting   installation will come together during the moment of demolition, when the totality of the south-  facing wall structure is exposed.   When the front of the house is torn down, one dark shape emerges surrounded by family guilt,   house sits, sublet keys, prepaid phone cards, stuffed backpacks, taxi load refusals and ziplock   bags filled with yuan, euros and loonies.
