Bio:

Tenzin Dorjé (b.1989, Kathmandu, Nepal) is an artist of Tibetan descent currently based in Toronto. His works explore the relationship between people and their built environments, as well as notions of faith, place and memory.

Artist Statement: 

THE WORLD IS YOURS, serves as a playful attempt to strike at the notion of a human-centric and individualistic worldview and instead directs the viewer’s attention to the shared responsibility of all life on earth. The work addresses issues of inequity and environmental degradation that have borne from an emphasis on the individual to possible resolutions that might arise by embracing the commonality and interconnectedness of all life. By displaying the letters on a billboard, the work also challenges the nature of our public spaces which are increasingly dominated by commercial advertisements, influencing the motivations and behaviour of people that inhabit these spaces.
