Iceberg lettuce salad with cherry tomato confit, watermelon cubes & cucumber, brioche croutons & blue de benedictine dressing (7$).Light, crisp absolutely refreshing and above all, blue cheesy! This salad is a huge hit and although I usually never order iceberg lettuce-based salads, this is a definite exception.
Corwyn Lund is a Toronto-based artist and one of the designers of room 405 Parlour of Twilight.
Following an interdisciplinary education in art, design and architecture, Lund relocated to Toronto in 2000. He has since shown locally and internationally, including exhibitions and video screenings in San Jose, Chicago, Cuba, Germany, and the Netherlands. His work is held in the National Gallery’s Library & Archives, the Canada Council Art Bank, as well as private and corporate collections.
Corwyn Lund’s work animates space and design objects in dynamic relationship to the body. His installations, photography, and video are unified as a sculptural practice.
Formative public art projects, such as Swingsite, and the collaborative works MusicBox RevolvingDoor and Parlour of Twilight, are strategically integrated into civic spaces to invite direct physical engagement. Subsequent gallery-based installations, at venues such at Mercer Union and YYZ Artists’ Outlet, have continued to explore the relationship between context and sculptural form.
Just a few reasons we think you should get to know Corwyn Lund.
Having spent 2 years on The Clock (2010), video artist Christian Marclay is spending some time at The Power Plant, and Noa Knows, you shouldn’t let another second slip by without going to see it.
The Clock collages film clips into a 24 hour, looped, single-channel video that also functions as a working clock. Bringing seemingly fragmented time imagery like wristwatches, clock towers, sundials, alarm clocks, and countdowns together, Marclay manages to represent every minute of a full day in a continuous, 24 hour narrative.
You get caught up in The Clock because you’re watching what appears to be this endless film. You sort of know that it’s collaged together but part of you believes in it, so there’s this push-and-pull between multiple realities: the illusion of cinema and the obviousness of the collage and the reality of the real time. -Christian Marclay via ART iT
Open up iCal, write it on the back of your hand, sync it in your phone calendar–whatever you do, Noa Knows you need to make some time to see The Clock.
This week our staff is up to something big. Like really big. 18-wheeler mobile art installation big!
I’m talking about Special Delivery, the mobile art installations feature at IIDEX which transforms 18-wheeler truck interiors into site-specific, immersive installations created by local designers and artists responding to the mobile space of show trucks. Paired with a truck sponsor, each installation considers, is inspired by and/or incorporates the materials, processes or products of the vehicles they inhabit.
Co-curated by our Director of Marketing and PR, William Jeremy Vandermeij (along with Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson of MADE, and Deborah Wang of Toronto Design Offsite), with an 18-wheeler installation by Gladstone President, Christina Zeidler, Special Deliver is extra special for us.
Here’s a sneak peek of Christina Zeidlers 53ft truck installation ‘Simulacra’ for Hewlett-Packard Canada using their latex print technology on a huge array of materials. Now just imagine how amazing the other 50ish feet are going to look!
Come by the Gladstone to see what 18-wheeler stuff Jeremy and Christina have been up to this Fri. 21st 7-10pm during the Fender Bender party and Sat. 22 10am-4pm.
