BEFORE DEMOLITION: TIDES invites us to explore the hidden history of an abandoned house in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia. Artist Emily Neufeld creates an installation from the former home of Cheticamp fisherman as part of her growing series BEFORE DEMOLITION. Neufeld investigates the dialogue between the materials she uses and the spaces she creates, uncovering the unintentional domestic archives left in the spaces we live in, and exploring the loss of land, home and belonging. Neufeld’s work begs the question: Can a space ever be empty? What fills the spaces between the walls? Where does the content of a house end? At the doorway? In the yard? In the land itself? Do some spaces look in while others look out?
