Karen Azoulay’s 2002 installation Sprinkle Sprinkle is a garden of flowers raining down a colourful torrent of pompoms and painted coffee filters. Azoulay is much taken with confetti and theatre sets, combining the two in within her magically romantic landscape. This Toronto artist acknowledges that her work is feminine, but not political, simply a “byproduct of (her) femininity”. Azoulay’s organic shapes sometimes come together as garlands which, along with the confetti of petals, are often distributed to convey love and blessings in several cultures. Put that umbrella away.
