Michael Longford, Robert Prenovault
September 19 - October 27, 2012
Through this mixed media installation artists Longford and Prenovault explore what remains of the first commercial transatlantic wireless station in Cape Breton built by Guglielmo Marconi in 1907. In its day, this Canadian landmark in the early history of wireless telegraphy and radio could be seen and heard for miles around. Today the remaining structures are silent, quietly deteriorating over time.

Maleta Stories explores the growing hybridity of communities and the diasporic identity that is formed through global migration. Through stop motion animation and a participatory installation, Largo invites the public to share their maleta stories, or in other words, their distant or direct stories of how they came to be in Canada.
