ISLAND PROJECTS explores how different artists’ perspectives expand an experience of the same place. The artists in ISLAND PROJECTS are exhibiting photography, video, and documentation of performances and site-specific installations. Their work variously reflects experiences of engagement with place, community, history, narrative, and collaborative practice at Artscape Gibraltar Point and on the Toronto Islands.

Brendan George Ko is a visual storyteller working in photography, video, installation, text, and sound. His work conveys a sense of experience through storytelling, and he describes the image as supplementary to the story it represents. In 2010, Ko received his BFA from the Ontario College of Art & Design University, where he majored in photography, and he went on to the Master of Visual Studies programme at the University of Toronto, where his practice focused on video and sound.
