Our first museum exhibit in North America!

The McCord Museum screened our short documentary during the course of the Shadows without Borders exhibit, and photographs we took in refugee communities in Istanbul and Athens were also on display. The exhibit took place between 13 November, 2018 - 6 January, 2019 in Montreal, Canada.

From the McCord Museum website:

"The participatory installation Shadows without Borders by Mere Phantoms asks visitors to discover and reflect on exile, what binds our identity, and the strength of our connection to that irreplaceable place called “home.”

As you travel through this shadow world with lamps, discover pieces created during workshops in refugee communities in Greece and Turkey alongside work made by the artists. Playing with shadow and light, you are invited to highlight an object, a moment or a place, or cast them into darkness.

The work will evolve throughout its run as visitors add their creations to express their own concept of home. During the exhibition, newcomers to Canada and the general public will be invited to add their artistic touch to enhance this constantly changing collective installation."
