Rabbit // Pause Samantha Sannella and Paola Poletto Clark Centre for the Arts, Toronto January 3 - 30, 2024 www.rabbitpause.com Opening Reception: Saturday, January 13, 1-3 pm Samantha Sannella and Paola Poletto tease out what it means to self-identify with a rabbit: how an interspecies relationship becomes a mirror for friendship, the self, and for living sustainably. This exhibition Rabbit // Pause is open daily 9 am - 4 pm, January 3-30, 2024 at the Clark Centre for the Arts, Toronto. Why rabbits? Sam has always identified with them. As a child, Sam had two white rabbits: Curious and Cautious. They fascinated her - their innocence and purity - but also their survival instincts. One day they disappeared and rather than being heartbroken, she imagined they left for a more adventurous life or a more peaceful existence - free from chaos. Sam has often envied them and imagined what it would be like to have that type of freedom. This exhibition is the culmination of a year's worth of painting self-portraits and creating poetry as rabbits. The creative work contains symbology through colour and artistic elements that are representative of her experiences and emotional responses. Paola's project response is a photographic triptych and an accompanying bookwork inspired by Sam's portraits and the site of the Clark Centre for the Arts. Set upon an idyllic community park filled with classical ruins from a local mason, forest animals and creatures, and a winding path through the trees to Lake Ontario, she imagined other rabbits besides our own busy amongst the grasses, and people strolling along the paths and banks of Lake Ontario mindful of one another, enjoying one another.
