The meticulous acquisition of objects, the recasting of belongings across time and localities, and the premeditated display of artifacts are all common museum practices—they also comprise some of the impulses guiding Celia Perrin Sidarous’ work. Both entities orchestrate the production of exhibitions, and reference complex histories through mise en scène. Idiosyncratically, each employ strategies to confront the ways in which objects may be interpreted by viewers; but while the museum methodically prescribes viewing conditions, the artist intentionally confounds them, yet solicitously offers clues.

Drawing from these affinities and an array of other associations, Montreal-based Perrin Sidarous was invited to create a site-specific installation at Campbell House Museum—a rare remaining example of Georgian architecture in Toronto, built in 1822 using classical Greek and Roman style, symmetry, and proportion. Originally located on a plot of land nearby, Campbell House was moved to its current site to prevent the building’s impending destruction. Positioned within a contemporary environment, this historic house acts as a stage for the artistic practice of Perrin Sidarous, likewise transiently relocated.

Law Students and Lawyers at Vimy – We Remember

Ontario Law Student Lt GG May
Killed in Action 9 April 1917

Curated by E. Patrick Shea, LSM

 …the barren earth erupted humanity. From dugouts, shell holes and trenches, men sprang into action, fell into military formations and advanced to the ridge – every division of the corps moved forward together. It was Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific on parade. I thought then, and I think today, that in those few minutes, I witnessed the birth of a nation

Brigadier-General Hon Alexander Ross, OC, CMG, DSO & Bar, VD, QC

This exhibition remembers the service and sacrifice of the dozens of law students and lawyers who served at the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April of 1917. Curator Patrick Shea tells the brave and poignant stories of these young men, and reflects upon the Canadian legal profession’s contribution to World War I. The Battle of Vimy Ridge continues to live in the hearts and minds of Canadians, especially during this month of April, in the 100th anniversary year.

The exhibition is in the ballroom of Campbell House Museum, which looks out over Toronto’s legal precinct and Osgoode Hall, home of the Law Society of Upper Canada. It was at this intersection of Queen and University that the City of Toronto originally proposed Vimy Circle, a monumental plan of curved buildings and radiating streets that would have radically altered the city that we know today.

  1. Patrick Shea, LSM is a Partner at Gowling WLG.  He served as an officer in the Canadian Forces Reserves and was the person behind the 2014 grant of honorary calls to 58 Ontario law students killed in World War I.
