Central East Correctional Centre

Gallery 1 / Gallery 2

“[Prison] relieves us of the responsibility of seriously engaging with the problems of our society, especially those produced by racism and, increasingly, global capitalism.
        - Angela Davis, Are Prisons Obsolete? 2003

Central East Correctional Centre is the latest instalment in Sheena Hoszko’s ongoing intellectual and conceptual process of mapping human-made geographic locations and in the process, exploring human relationships with control, confinement, and movement. Through minimalist sculptural installation, drawings, as well as text Central East Correctional Centre addresses incarceration and immigration detention in North America and asks us to consider: What would a world without prisons look like?
