April 30 May 1 Eastern Edge
Eastern Edge Gallery currently has on exhibition two new installations from young Canadian artists — Jonathan Villeneuve from Quebec and Kip Jones from Ontario.
Both works share some commonalities - they use wood as construction material and they make you think about what surrounds us … the banal, the plain, things we take for granted.
Villeneuve’s piece, Wavelength, looks and sounds like a throbbing back deck turned on its side, while Jones’s piece, Linear Gesture, carves up that most common of human environments, shared space.
I spoke with Jonathan Villeneuve about his bumping, boiling piece. You’ll hear a little of that before we turned it off.
