TORONTO: Olga Korper Gallery: Lynne Cohen

Opening Saturday, June 4th 2pm-5pm

[Curation and Text by Aaron Guravich]

A cursory examination of Lynne Cohen’s photographs is enough to reveal how much space humans occupy in the world. We have colonized nearly all of the immediately habitable space on this globe and we continue to impose our existence onto habitats that were perhaps never destined to be our own. Wherever we roam we leave behind an indelible mark. In the event of a species-wide catastrophe, there will be plenty of human detritus for future archaeologists to sift through. We, however, are so familiar with the empty husks of buildings that we need little information to tell us what they are.
