The Story of Water: The Erie Canal as Site of Untold Stories

An installation by Linda Zhang

Water. It’s all about water. What’s interesting about water is that it has no form, and it also has the power to deform; water dissolves as much as it moves, fills and gives life. Such indeterminacy makes water impossibly difficult to record – water cannot be 3D scanned. Yet, such indeterminacy also offers the space for meditation on how life and lives are formed, re-formed, and even deformed over time.

Linda Zhang is an Assistant Professor at Ryerson SID and a principal at Studio Pararaum. She is the 2019 Multicultural Fellow at NCECA, a 2020 Artist in Residence at the European Ceramic Workcentre (EKWC), the 2017–2018 Boghosian Fellow at Syracuse University SOA as well as a 2017 Fellow at the Berlin Center for Art and Urbanistics. Her research areas include memory, cultural heritage, identity politics, material processes (namely casting and ceramics), and digital reproduction technologies.

Our core mission is to embrace and support the work of national and international contemporary creators working in the field of art + design.
