Join us for a bookmaking workshop in the library! This activity is an opportunity to reinterpret our collection and explore simple folding and binding techniques with the guidance of multidisciplinary artist Yen-Chao Lin. This will also be a great moment to discover some documents from the Mobilivre project. Participants are invited to bring personal items (textiles, paper, text) that they would like to use during the activity. Additional material will also be provided.

Produced during an artist residency at Oboro, and curated by Alice Ming Wai Jim, DIY Haunt is an immersive installation performance inspired by childhood experiences in the Republic of China in the 1980s and 1990s during a period of turbulent political change and rapid economic growth.
Part tableau vivant of memories, part healing box, DIY Haunt speaks to the social and economic austerity of the post-Chinese civil war trauma where differences between intergenerational experiences invoked separation, boundaries, and divisions. The performance focuses on inversion and stillness, using endurance as a metaphor for different forms of resistance to cultural conditioning past and present, here in Canada, as elsewhere.
