THE PAGE · TORONTO

Nathalie Pozzi


“The Page” is an immense public sculpture that aims to reflect on the history of the West Don Lands, while at the same time interpreting and making connections to the current transitional moment of development that the area is undergoing. Formed of white bent metal plates, the undulating form evokes a sense of lightness, where its movement becomes reminiscent of a scroll of paper.  A Morse code pattern is cut into the surface that is lyrically spread thoroughout the piece, making a collage of words that respond to the site. The Morse text runs from top to bottom, starting and stopping throughout the piece. This creates a directional motion that concludes with a footnote. Subtly placed on another part of the sculpture is the corresponding footnote symbol leading to a poem written by the artist that responds to the site and its changing state of progression. This tiny text is meant to be a surprise, a happy find, where the viewer can have a moment of intimate reflection concerning the work’s meaning in relation to the site and the current moment that they are sharing with this object. “The Page” aims to become a marker for the past, a participant in transforming the present, and a witness to a vibrant future.
