HOMEbody with Sharron Litzenberger
HOMEbody is an exploration of identity, belonging and place through the lens of my own experience growing up on a Saskatchewan farm and later moving to the largest city in the country – Toronto. While my family’s farm is nearing its centennial anniversary, the property to the north and south of our home quarter has long been vacated, the houses left abandoned – decaying monuments of their pioneering roots. These homes represent not only an abandonment of place, but also characterize the mass exodus of my generation from rural life. HOMEbody is both an intimate portrait of my childhood prairie home and a tribute to the importance of where we come from.” – Shannon Litzenberger
