"PullFreight, The Transitory Nature of Significance"
Gilles Hébert, "PullFreight, The Transitory Nature of Significance," momento box detail, 2015.
Born in Winnipeg, Gilles Hébert has been collecting unique ephemera over the past 30 years. Through a process of narrative association, Hébert has transformed these objects into stories, composing a collection of 25 conjured characters. Their photos and mementos live in Cuban cigar boxes and 13 wall mounted 'stations’ on display. PullFreight is a multi-media installation and includes the PullFreight Video, a slide projection, and a museum style retail shop of mementos.
