A retired elementary school principle must confront spaces both concrete and virtual, as she attempts to naviagte the ghosts of her past.
With Marie Haddad
“Haddad’s The Beautiful Room is Empty explores the loaded memories of space through his aunt, Marie, (re)visiting her childhood home and recalling the abuse she endured there. […] What have the walls been listening to? What have they absorbed, retained, and released upon a return, a farewell?
- Sarah Sarofim, Canadian Art
