Katrin Faridani Interconnected: From the Tap to the Lake and Back

Jun 21–Aug 5,  2023

Interconnected is a visual exploration of the Toronto wastewater system, its connection to our drinking water and to Lake Ontario. It examines the consequences of urbanization and solutions for mitigating its negative effects for better water management in the Greater Toronto Area. Through a representational approach, Katrin Fardani focuses on the path of water from her home to Lake Ontario, documenting parts of the Don River watershed, the Ashbridge’s Bay treatment plant and ultimately the Island and R. C. Harris water treatment plants, which process our drinking water from Lake Ontario and send it to our taps, thus illustrating the full cycle of water to and from the artist’s home.
