The ByWard Market BIA is glad to present to you this great exhibit by Monique Martin from June 15th to August 31st. Bring your family and take a stroll through the Market as you discover the beauty of Dandelions and their resilience.
About the Exhibit
In Context is Everything, Saskatoon-based artist Monique Martin exhibits hundreds of realistic
paper dandelions in a sprawling installation that carpets the gallery floor. They create an immersive
environment that uses symbolism to inspire joy, hope, and optimism.
Sometimes considered a weed, dandelions defy the order imposed around them; a golden infringement
on a carefully manicured lawn, a cheerful intervention in a crack in the sidewalk, a silent protest against
monoculture, disrupting the status quo. Martin’s dandelions are a hopeful symbol of resilience that
encourage us to persevere. Interspersed among her dandelions are multicoloured silk screened
butterflies, a symbol of metamorphosis in Martin’s work. She reminds us that throughout our lives,
we are in a constant process of transformation, and that tomorrow we will not be the same as we are today.
