Cabinet Fantastique: Ghost City by Sonia Gemmiti + Christy Stoeten | Public Space 2nd floor


Memories are inextricably linked to the geography of the city in which we live. When we see changes to that geography, we experience a break in our own continuity. The razing of a landmark building may not take our memories from us, but it does extinguish the magic we have imbued in these locations, and forever alters our relationship to our city. Cabinet Fantastique: Ghost City is a multidisciplinary art installation—a theatrical production presented at a 1:25 scale using miniature set pieces and holographic technology. A whimsical marriage of modern dance and digital projection, this piece is created as a love letter to Toronto’s lost architectural heritage. A special acknowledgement to Joe Madziak (Construction Consultant), Tredegar Kennedy (Metal Fabricator), Ryan Barnett (Technical Advisor), "White Dove" song by Jenn Grant. ———————————————————————————————— Sonia Gemmiti is a Montreal-based designer who has worked in the film industry for 8 years in Vancouver and Toronto.
