Tele Tales Opening View

Brought to you by Emerging Young Artists from Toronto and Sparkground from London, is our exciting transnational art exhibition project: Tele-Tales, in which we share the awareness of the current urban living experience and situation, where humanity is at heart.

In etymology, the prefix “tele-” comes from Ancient Greek têle, meaning at a distance, far off, and far away. Twelve artists, of which six from London and six from Toronto, have been paired up as six groups to communicate and collaborate, create and re-create, through the lens of distance and temporality. In the open reception, we witnessed the encounter of different paths of life, personal memories intertwined. We danced and played under the cities reflections, to discover history casted onto discarded objects by their previous owners, and engaged with artists’ unspoken languages.
