Chrysanne Stathacos
Toronto, Canada


True Patriot Love is the memorable phrase from Canada's national anthem. How do we interpret these words as Canadians? Transformed into a giant haiku poem, made from flowers & cut wood, it floats in a water-filled pond, revealing deeper meanings and revelations.

By having the words float individually, the dictionary meaning of each word will be highlighted:

True:
1. Conforming with reality or fact
2. Genuine, not pretended, insincere, or artificial
3. Showing loyalty to another person, cause, purpose, or religious belief

Patriot:
1. Somebody who proudly supports or defends his or her country and its way of life

Love:
1. An intense feeling of tender affection and compassion
2. A passionate feeling of romantic desire and sexual attraction
3. Somebody who is loved romantically

Chrysanne Stathacos is a multi-media artist who explores the obvious & subliminal connections between ritual actions, feminism, technology & environmental issues resulting in cross-cultural, hybrid art forms.
