what if…a space… (is not occupied but inaugurated)
An exercise in germination and abstraction
The Earl Selkirk Gallery is a unique architectural space nested within ARTiculations, an art supply and stationery store in the Junction area that also hosts a variety of related workshops. Rather than “exhibiting” artwork in the gallery, my project attempts to give recognition to the character of the space, both spatially and architecturally. My subject therefore, is the gallery as a collection of rhythmically orchestrated openings, a sort of sieve. Using a combination of discretely placed elements (abstract drawings, small architectural and plant forms), I attempt to commence the space as a site of experience (on its own terms).
