Paul Couillard: Sitting With The Mountain
at Offthemapgallery, Toronto

PAUL COUILLARD: For 30 days, I will spend 8 hours each day at the gallery "performing", developing thresholds or situations that speak to experiences of loss and grief. I am on a hunt for images that open up possibilities for moving through and alleviating trauma. The work will evolve daily, with accumulating and dissipating evidence of my gestures. My interest lies in the idea of relieving trauma, not reliving it. What can alleviate the suffering associated with loss? What can grief teach us?
