Never Give a Megalomaniac Boxing Gloves

From April 2 to 29, 2012 I had a few images on display on a giant highway billboard in Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A. OooooOOooooo how I wish I could have seen this fun project in person!! The images tell a strange story involving crossed stars, sideway looks, love, wise fish and mathematics. The images of me in costume were taken by Montreal's Vincent Lafrance at the 2012 Art Souterrain in metro Bonaventure. The rest of the images I submitted are here ----> x

Josiah liming in duds

Here is Josiah smiling smiling as he sits propped up happily dressed in shoes, underwears, a dress shirt with working buttons, a cravat fashioned from my Grandpa Saxby's cravat and a beautiful overcoat in black pinstripe. All these amazing clothes were sewn by by tante Jean! Merci Jean xoxoxooxxooxooxox Also you can see a few pics of his installation at the Encampment, Fort York site in Toronto. There are two lengths of bunting and a 6 foot wall hanging with a few details about mister Josiah Henson as well as Lieutenant John Graves Simcoe who in 1793, almost 100 years before the U.S.A, was responsible for the legislation outlawing future slavery in Canada and outlining equal civil rights for future black Canadians. Shocking/Amazing/Sad this wasn't taught to us in school?!
