15. LYLA RYE

TORONTO, ONTARIO

An intensive investigation of this classroom's past through the multitude of pinholes in the bulletin board that accumulated over time. If the traces of use form a building’s memory, can a building also anticipate the future?

Lyla’s main practice centers on making installations in unusual sites. These are usually temporary, ephemeral works that almost exist in the imagination as much as in reality. This type of work plays with perception by being barely visible at certain times of day. She also creates video-based work, exploring how different modes of spatial depiction portray and distort illusions of three-dimensional space.
