How Do I Fit This Ghost in My Mouth?

May 30–September 7, 2015

750 Hornby Street
Vancouver, BC V6Z 2H7

A remembering, a foreground and a dancing text. 
A nose, a staging, a clock and a laughing palm.
You will tower up like a giant and then shrink back to your original size. 
You will see days change colour and two million years will fit into your pocket. 

How Do I Fit This Ghost in My Mouth? is a mid-career survey organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, the gallery’s Chief Curator/Associate Director, with Diana Freundl, Assistant Curator. This exhibition is accompanied by a substantial 400-page artist book focusing on The Surgeon and the Photographer
