Turf is a collaborative exhibition of staged, documentary, and contemplative photographs exploring literal and abstract concepts of home.
It combines selections from ongoing personal projects of five Canadian photographers from the East Coast who comprise the Hot Fog Collective.
On a spectrum between place and feeling, individual meanings of home emerge.
Turf asks how the individual shapes the place, and how the place shapes the individual.
The artists illustrate relationships with land, identity, community, and changing geographic and social landscapes.
They raise questions about intuition and perception — imagining home as a sense of being, and creative process as a means of transportation.
Curated by the Hot Fog Collective in Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw.
