SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED since my last update!
First things first:
I just yesterday returned from a trip to Toronto, whose primary business was the attendance of my cousin’s wedding, but which also afforded me the opportunity for a behind-the-scenes enjoyment of Joshua Vettivelu‘s installation Glory Hole at the Toronto International Art Fair.
Located at the top of the entrance escalator near the booth for the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Glory Hole “reflects on moments where the transcendent, the sentimental, and the spiritual become commercial commodity. It consists of two parts, an architecture that camouflages and a performance that produces an object, seemingly endlessly.” (from artist statement for Glory Hole, Joshua Vettivelu, 2012).
I will write a proper review of this piece once it has completed, and I look forward to including more images of the work as they become available.

While back in Toronto I also:
devoured delicious curries, stews, salads, and pastries
met some amazing artists
snuggled with some of my very favourites
walked around in the rain
had coffee in two very nostalgic hangs
saw some beautiful tables
hung out with some cats.
Here are some photos:
