Touch The Light- Nuit Blanche 2012

Artvendu Presents: The Northern Beaver Gallery’s Touch The Light.

Nuit Blanche 2012

In the Queen Street Alcove of the Edward Day Gallery at 952 Queen St. W.
Returning for a second year, artists Rebecca Houston, Doris Purchase and Adriana Monti use the Canadian-made Northern Beaver Vending Machines to play with light. Houston sets the vending machine aglow, a mother ship that will birth a wearable spark for you to carry off into the night. Purchase asks the question “Whose Art Is It?”, highlighting
craft and the work of the hand with a glow-in-the-dark button. Monti using the pages of an English Thesaurus plays with words and Le Siècle des Lumières ideas. For $2, you can participate in disseminating light, seeding the dark as the installation gradually
relinquishes the torch to be carried by many hands.
