  • The Mississippi Valley textile Museum 3, Rosamond Street East Almonte, ON, K0A 1A0 Canada (map)

Tania Love’s solo exhibition, pathways at The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte, Ontario presents a site specific installation, which includes multiple vertical panels evocative of a body of water, river patterns, mapping and topographical references.  While thinking about how to approach this space and develop a body of work, her focus centred on the museum’s setting and historical use as a textile mill along the river as well as the reshaping of the land through development.  The exhibition draws attention to the precious natural resource of flowing water that was instrumental in powering industrial growth, mills and textile dyeing and opens a platform to reflect on our contemporary relationship with water.
