About This Event

Exploits Islands is a remote community off Newfoundland's northeast coast. The community resettled in 1967 and, until 1988, a bridge connected the two tiny islands. After resettlement, it was demolished and not replaced. This exhibition will present archival photos of the bridge screen printed by hand on silk, which has been naturally dyed by being wrapped around the metal remains of the last bridge. Through the dyeing process, the bridge has helped Johnston make the work and the exhibition will symbolically recreate the social fabric that the bridge once wove together.
