Kotama Bouabane, Krista Fraser, Crystal Liu, Heather Schibli and Erin Seaman at SOF Art House (688 Richmond West) to April 27. 416-203-0069. Rating: NNNN
Over at SOF, photography students grace the walls with some solid work. Kotama Bouabane takes pictures of chalkboards using a flat documentary style to highlight the text as well as the texture left by the felt erasers. Heather Schibli creates clouds out of images of garbage and stitches rain with thread, while Crystal Liu photographs the subtle reflections of cloudy skies, letting strips of land cling desperately to the very bottom of the frame.
