Filletti writes that the project consists of recycled drawings from the past 30 years, repurposed for a new way to look at things after a life-changing experience.

“Life-changing experiences are just that – they call into question all sorts of familiar ways of looking at the world and responses to how we make sense of it all,” she writes.

“It’s a little frightening, changing, passing from one thing to another, all that vulnerability rising to the surface … An appropriate way, it seems, to say goodbye to a certain perception – drawings wrapping other drawings, occupying space in some new way, in that space between.”

The Space Between runs until Sunday, Oct. 18, and is dedicated to John Filletti (1931 to 2015).

Local author Cordelia Strube is one of 150 Canadian authors who were photographed by Mark Raynes Roberts as part of his project Illumination: Portraits of Canadian Authors and Literature.

The project places the subjects either in their homes or in a place of inspiration. The number of authors was chosen to coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday in two years.

The photos in Illumination will be on display at the Toronto Reference Library from Oct. 11 until Nov. 1, and at Harbourfront as part of the International Festival of Authors from Oct. 22 until Nov. 1.
