Walking down Queen street the other day, I stumbled upon the latest installation in the *QueenSpecific project space, and it made me smile.
Here is a quick snap I took of it on my phone... if you are walking by 787 Queen St. West in the next little while, take a moment to stop and check it out. Its located right beside Dufflet Pastries...
Queen Street Particulate (Blonde Cop), 2012
19.10.12 – 28.11.12
For Queen Street Particulate (Blonde Cop), Ryan Park has turned *QueenSpecific into an air-powered ball mixer reminiscent of lottery draw machines. In his work, Park uses shared objects, encounters, and cultural touchstones as
starting points to produce work that oscillate between serious and
playful, clinical and poetic. His interdisciplinary practice results in
videos, photographs, and manipulations of found materials suggested by
presences and absences; urges and constraints. He currently lives and
works on Queen Street in Toronto.
