This never before seen footage shows FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER the omnipotent and omnipresent (not EVER omnibenevolent) entity: the Stock Market. Donning a green $uit at a vastly empty Toronto Dominion Centre on a hot November day, Stock Market tries to keep her balance but stumbles as the people in suits pull and push at her from many different sides. This happens everyday, Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 4pm, for the rest of eternity. How well did she perform today? What do you think? Maybe you can catch her there sometime if she decides to appear in the flesh again.
Camille Rojas (b. 1993 Toronto; lives and works in Toronto) is a multidisciplinary artist working with film, photography and dance. Her work uses movement as the primary vehicle to dissect ideas and emotions, most of which address experiences of gender, race and class within life and institutions. Using her own presence in her work - sometimes through a persona - offers the opportunity to delve deeper within various concepts whether it is by herself or as part of an ensemble. She received her BFA in Photography Studies at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts (2017) and has recently exhibited her work at Gallery 44, Gallery TPW, Critical Distance Centre for Curators, Erin Stump Projects and Ryerson image Centre.
