As part of the activities developed in parallel with the exhibitions, Sporobole invites you to a presentation by the artist Mitch Mitchell on Friday, June 8 at 7:30 p.m., followed at 8 p.m. by a conference by sociologist Alain Deneault on tax evasion and maritime transport

Mitch Mitchell’s Berth installation, which runs from June 7 to July 29, 2012 in Sporobole, is made from thousands of hand-printed miniature containers, folded and stacked, halfway between stacking cargo containers and stacking quarry stones. A claustrophobic but nevertheless playful relationship created in this space becomes a poetic metaphor for mass production, population density and global resource depletion.
