Y & G #12 (curtain walls)

September 16 - December 15, 2013

Three sculptures and a film introduce the theme of the glass curtain wall in the collaborative work of Christian Giroux and Daniel Young.

The film Camera Tracking a Spiral Drawn Between the Two Curved Towers of Viljo Revell’s Toronto City Hall (2010), which documents an iconic example of Modernist architecture, was produced using the building itself as a “machine” and provides a conceptual starting point for the exhibition.

The sculptures conjoin a customized acrylic and spider-clamp design with standard off-the-shelf industrial racking systems to create human-scale sculptures that invite us to reflect on the production of space in the urban environment.

Viewed together, the film and sculptures produce a series of intersecting readings in which the practices of modernist architecture and contemporary sculpture approach and negotiate one another.
