Person/ne reveals the agency of taking action through art making. Alternatively meditative, declarative, political and insistent, the artists’ works reveal acts of care, citizenship and personhood, or cognizance of its lack, through a variety of unexpected means.

The exhibition includes 41 of the extraordinary postcards Pierre Coupey's grandfather, Léon Coupey, addressed to his beloved K-K-K Katie, Pierre's grandmother, Kate Barlow Hunt Coupey, during Léon's and Kate's courtship in London and through their married life in Paris in the Belle Epoque.

Works are drawn from Griffin Art Projects Residency Artists and private collections in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, and Eastbourne UK. Artists in the exhibition include Sonny Assu, Stephen Balkenhol, Christian Boltanski, Sophie Calle, Léon Coupey, Stan Douglas, Duane Linklater, Yevgeniy Fiks, Sima Khourami, Shawn Hunt, Emily Jacir, Mahdyar Jamshidi, Zoe Kreye, Steve McQueen, Ann Newdigate, Ricarda Roggan, Norman Tait, Stephen Waddell, Ai Wei Wei, Janet Werner, Lam Wong and Sisleg Xhafa
