PULP is coming back to BIG on Bloor Festival (July 23-24) with Card-yard at BIG on Bloor! Find more details at pulpartparty.ca - PULP has been involved in BIG on Bloor since 2013. We are given outdoor space in the middle of the festival and a budget to create activity and art hubs. We commission Toronto artists to create small and large scale installations, pavilions or architectural follies, and landscape design that can be implemented during busy festivals (BIG on Bloor saw 100,000 visitors in two days in 2015). - This year we are trying something new with the cardboard tubes. We have a new design for CNC plywood and cardboard tubes that allows you, the visitor, to create furniture and even architecture at the festival. It's like a giant Lego Technic kit, more information to come! More information please visit our art, activity, and performance pages at pulpartparty.ca

Mikromaladang

Mikromaladang is a large scale communal sculptural couch that seeks to explore the notions of utilitarian and industrial designed objects, and in this case specifically couches. With the exhibition of this work being at outdoor summer festivals, this work plays up the outdoor elements in a playful manner alike to how furniture are often packaged and bungee-cord wrapped up during transportation and delivery. The title of the work, “Mikromaladang”, is a play on words from Cantonese and Greek origin which plays homage to industrial designers (in this case the two artist collaborators) where they would create a new word by combining various words to incorporate a larger meaning to describe their project. The assembled title contains fragments of meanings of being large, soft, hard, and small which alludes to the physicality of the actual work. As part of the selection of PULP Reclaimed Art & Design Projects for this year’s street festivals across Toronto, Mikromaladang contains mainly reclaimed Etha-Foam from local mascot designers and makers in Toronto. Each piece of these foam materials (negative residual space) is informed by the original shapes and figures being craved by the mascoteers. This sculptural couch dramatizes its value and alludes to a grandiose designer furniture through being created to be oddly oversized and ostentatious in shapes and then being hidden underneath usual packaging cloth material, industrial plastic wrapped and accessorized with bright coloured bungee cords.

Over the past year, the Metrolinx Davenport Diamond Overpass- a 1.5km elevated bridge for GO trains, to be built along the Barrie GO corridor from Bloor to Davenport Road- has been a contentious issue in our community. As we have worked as a community to fight for the best interests of our community in whatever is built, we have managed to accomplish a number of wins along the way: a budget increase to the bridge plan of $60 million, a significantly improved design plan, and most recently, a GO station stop at Bloor and Lansdowne. But there is much work that still needs to be done. Come join us to learn about the bridge plan, our continuing work, and how you can be involved. We'll have a variety of fun activities and other surprises on hand, too. We look forward to meeting you there!

The Maze of La Vie Maison

Staying past midnight to finish up paperwork, owner of the furniture store La Vie Maison, Rafia Irum fell asleep at her desk. Unaware of her sleeping state, Irum woke to discover that all the furniture in the store had re-arranged itself into a maze. At every corner she was confronted by a knock-knock joke that plunged her deeper into the labyrinth of her dream. The Maze of La Vie Maison is a reconstruction of Irum’s dream inviting participants to wander through the maze and make sense of the mysteries that dwell in the store’s living furniture.

Dreambooks - Playing with Imagination.

Participants in this project will create an artistic bookwork by using one of the simplest and oldest of formats, the accordion book. Once the book is made, the participants will use the Surrealist technique of automatism to create the images or abstractions on the pages of the book. They will be instructed to relax, clear their minds and create a series of images from their intuitive minds, basically drawing in a wakeful dream state, trying to avoid any self-censorship or overt pre-planning. This was a technique the Surrealists developed in both visual art and literature for drawing from subconscious or unconscious mind to create artistic works. It is also known as stream of consciousness. The participants would select the size of the book from pre-cut cardboard covers, fold pre-cut paper strips and glue the covers to the opposite ends of the folded paper, a format used most often in Asian bookmaking. Crayons, sharpies, ink pins and watercolours will be provided for the participants, creating their books which they will take away with them as souvenirs of their foray into Surrealist bookmaking. They will learn trust their unbridled imaginations rather than clinging to rigid preplanned art making. The motto of our project: “Spontaneity over predetermination!”
