We highly recommend that you drop by Toronto’s Brookfield Place to experience the large panel photographs by photographer Meaghan Ogilvie in her first solo exhibition entitled Requiem of Water first hand.
“Requiem of Water is an act of remembrance to the spirit of water that has been forgotten. Water is our life-sustaining gift, connecting all living things – without it, there is no life. Contrary to our past, today’s developed technological society has become indifferent to this source of life. The world’s natural inheritance of rivers, seas and oceans has been exploited, abused and contaminated. These narrative images embody our relationship and journey back towards honouring the waters. By exploring Indigenous culture and bodies of water around the world, Requiem of Water reveals the simple and profound truth that, “Water is Life”. The goal of the Requiem of Water exhibit is to heighten public awareness and encourage thoughtful responsibility towards our precious water sources and the role we all play in caring for them.”
Visit Meaghan’s Facebook Page to see the behind-the-scenes photos and learn more about the project.
