Industrial Passages: A Worker Dwells Here
Merging industry with the arts and coinciding with Mayworks Windsor 2012, a two person exhibit of works by artists Collette Broeders and Julia Crampsie will be held at InspectX.

“Industrial Passages: A Worker Dwells Here” follows the journey of the worker through movement in industrial spaces. During the past two years, artist Collette Broeders collected and traced patterns of movements in the manufacturing sector that include rust stains and marks of evidence of the worker left behind. They become a methodical collection of markings culminating from an ongoing journey offering an opportunity to contemplate the spaces. The drawings form images that reflect map-like metaphors of the journey of the worker. The transparent images are layered providing an indexical view of the passage of labour for countless workers. The images revitalize forgotten spaces of empty factories and those left behind in the wake of economic downturns and urban decay.

This idea of revitalization or regeneration is central to my work as an artist. In researching and exploring work spaces, I am struck by the hard working character of the people coming and going to the numerous factories within this mixed-use urban area. This revitalization also facilitates interaction between artists and workers to build a greater understanding of one another and their community.
