Opening Reception 6 July 2000 8pm


No Visitors

I am not home all that often. When I am, I never know quite what to do with myself. Sometimes it gets lonely. A guest would be nice because it’s not much fun having lots of things without the occasional show-and-tell. My peephole lets me check the hallway without disturbing my neighbors. It’s generally empty. My timing’s probably not all that great. Drop-in visitors never seem to be around when you’re looking for them.

Janis Demkiw is a switchboard operator at a large bank. She also has an Honours B.F.A. from York University. Recent exhibitions include 5x5x2= at Art System, Toronto, 2000, and Suburban Landscape at Red Head Gallery Toronto, 1999. She lives and works in Toronto.
