Tiffany Schofield‘s MFA Thesis Exhibition of fiction and faction considers issues of ecological uncertainty, sustainability, and community building within the suburbs and examines the potential for revolution in suburbia, using Scarborough as its speculative case study. The exhibition’s main feature, a two-channel video installation proposes two possibilities for collective action in suburbia: Scarborough Sourdough, a group of novice bakers establishing sourdough culture in Scarborough; and the Orange Jackets, a group of activists who donate orange high-visibility hoodies and engage in direct action. Integrating actual places and events within an imagined narrative, of fiction and faction attempts to form an alternative archive, complicating familiar notions of Canadian suburban life while foretelling possible futures.
Tiffany Schofield is a Canadian artist and co-founder of Y+ contemporary, an artist-run space located in Scarborough.
