Abstract (English)

Hunter imagines the life and setting of the Victorian era merchant and shipbuilder, James Peake Jr., who went from financial success in Charlottetown to die in poverty and obscurity in Vancouver. Hunter suggests the objects, paintings and archival photographs within the show reflect the life of Peake. Baldissera argues that projects like Hunter’s invite audiences to question the framework in which artworks and objects are presented. 4 bibl. ref.
