Flight Distance: Jesse Bromm and Janet Macpherson September 29 - December 23, 2012 at Harbourfront Centre

“Flight distance” refers to the distance that animals like to keep between themselves and a threat of danger, and this distance varies with the degree of wildness of the animals. This collaboration between Craft Studio artists-in-residence Janet Macpherson and Jesse Bromm explores this idea through found objects, manufactured environments and slip-cast ceramic multiples. The twelve installations, divided into four sections called Tame, Feral, Sundry and Culled, examine the human propensity for violence and control through the manipulation of animals and the environment.
