CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A photographic installation, of mounted prints on aluminum, presented as a mosaic. The installation regroups NAPL black and white aerial mapping images from the 1930’s to 2002, and the artist's own colour photographs, both aerial and ground, of what remains. The artist states in her reference material: "The images in the resulting mosaic create an intertwined narrative of time and memory with place, and reveal a long and proud period of growth and maturation in Ottawa’s, and Canada’s, history."

PLEASE NOTE that the Ottawa Art Gallery and OAG Shop will close at 6 PM on Thursday, December 1st. The European Union Film Festival will continue as scheduled that evening.
