Sarah Ciurysek: Dear Mary


During her Radar residency in England, Sarah Ciurysek had a chance encounter with Mary, an elderly woman walking in nearby fields with the aid of two canes. Fascinated by the generational and cultural differences between them, Sarah set out to find out more about Mary, her life as a farmer, her love of animals and her relationship to the land.

Dear Mary was an audio work that paid tribute to Mary, honouring her independence and the unique and unconventional way in which she lived her life. It also acted as a sonic photograph, capturing the mental images of Mary, Sarah returned to Canada with.  Written as an intimate letter to Mary, the audience were invited to listen to a retelling of the stories between these two women.

Sarah Ciurysek is a Canadian artist whose photographic, video, and installation works examine our relationship to the ground.
