A building wide-exhibition of Danish artist Gudrun Hasle's work, spanning Harbourfront Centre's entire main building with pockets of messages throughout.

Displayed throughout Harbourfront Centre’s Artport building, written sentences appear in expected and unexpected places. The sentences deal with feelings of loneliness, unbelonging and reflections on what it feels like to be marginalized, all designed to create a safe space to spark conversation and connection.

Part of Harbourfront Centre’s CoMotion Festival.

Gudrun Hasle

Danish artist Gudrun Hasle works in various mediums, such as embroidery, photography and video. Diagnosed with Dyslexia, her works are based on her experiences feeling incapable or marginalized. Through simple but misspelled sentences that are difficult to decode, her work challenges the power dynamic of communication and the norms of society.
