Portuguese artist Sancho Silva, the first to participate in the Canada Council for the Arts International Residency, presents an in situ installation. Probe is a wooden cabin, open to the public, to be built on the empty lot located on Queen Street by the Darling Foundry. Inside it, passersby will be confronted with a series of views relating to the lot’s condition within its urban context. In a deliberate distortion of the time-coordinates the cabin will work simultaneously as an archeological station, a museum and a prospective space.
