This brochure records the site specific work by Welsh artist Melanie Counsell: Drinking Fountain. By intervening in an abandoned industrial site, the artist invokes the spectral presence of the past, “like the tending of a gravesite.” The publication also includes a poster and an essay by Gregory Salzman documenting the site-specific project near the Morrow complex, Toronto.
