projects and identities



Toronto based artist, Dan Bergeon who is part of Fauxreel (faux means “fake” in French), is shooting portraits of residents from Toronto’s oldest social housing project, Regent Park. The project is part of the Luminato Festival and attempts to explores the relationship between the residents of Regent Park and the buildings they live in.

The artist Dan Bergeron goes on to explain:

“The buildings of Regent Park are in the process of being torn down and rebuilt, so the idea is supposed to make the residents literally become part of the physical landscape, challenge some of the pre-conceived notions that other Torontoian’s have of these people and stoke the discussion surrounding the displacement of some of regent park’s residents as they are kicked out of their homes for this re-build.”
