Echoes Calling Back

Echoes Calling Back, 2023
By Jordan Bennett

Commissioned by Luminato Festival Toronto
Curated and Produced by MASSIVart 

Echoes Calling Back

Public art has the power to transform communities, reflecting back to us the importance of place, history, and our shared values, but also to surprise and delight passers-by reminding us to pause, and (we hope) smile. 

At once buoyant and imposing, Echoes Calling Back by Jordan Bennett will transform pedestrians’ experience of a familiar and well-trodden urban site. The piece may serve as a meeting place, a shelter, a source of joy, or a symbol of our region’s living history.

Exploring the ancient relics of North American mega-fauna and using Bennett’s signature graphic style evocative of porcupine quillwork found in Mi’kmaq visual culture, this whimsical work imagines a playful remnant of a creature from a distant past, and will remind us that what we call home was once wilderness.
