On the Beach

In/Future proved to be an incredible re-imagining and re-invigoration of Ontario Place, that neglected public land occupying a special place in our memories and on the shore of Lake Ontario. We were honoured to create our component sculpture Flotsam/Jetsam for the exhibition and witness it shift and evolve through the actions of waves, weather and visitors over the course of the ten day festival.

Office + Colour

We’re currently in the development stages of creating a new commissioned piece for Perkins + Will’s Toronto office. Working with light and colour, Collaborative Chromatics will occupy a clean white south facing wall within their top floor loft workspace, the perfect canvas to produce swaths of glowing colours and shapes shifting with the cycles of daylight and night.

Inside and Out

We had a blast in ushering in the celebrations around this year’s Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival by creating an installation for the Launch Party in collaboration with multimedia artist Roxanne Luchak.

Held at the St. James Cathedral Centre, the event was followed later in the month by the Opening Party, where we mounted a variation on our piece again with Roxanne, this time at the TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Malaparte.

in/FUTURE

Our proposal Flotsam/Jetsam was selected for the groundbreaking exhibition in/FUTURE: A Transformative Art Experience to take place at Ontario Place this fall.
From September 15-25, 2016, the west island of Ontario Place will be transformed into a hub of artistic and performance activities. Located on the pebbled shore of the island will be Flotsam/Jetsam, a series of cast future relics and fragments of Ontario Place – invoking the park’s past as a utopian dream and the potential future of the island as an archaeological ruin.

Walrus Talking Resilience

Ross Curtner of Adjacent Possibilities delivered an impassioned and thought provoking account of our involvement in the Art + Energy exhibition for The Walrus Talks Resilience, presented November 2, 2015 at the Theatre Junction Grand in Calgary.

“Resilience Lies Between the Artist and the Engineer” described how the inspired pairing of artists (us) and clean tech energy entrepreneurs (Hydrostor) yielded unexpectedly rich results.

See and hear Ross speak here.

Artists Selected

We’ve completed our final project selections for Grow Op 2016 and to say we’re excited about the collection of work would be an understatement. Collaborating with a diverse jury and co-curator Graham Teeple, we’ve assembled a broad range of projects from artists working in the fields of landscape architecture, horticulture, painting, photography, sculpture, community engagement and all combinations in between. Stay tuned for details as we gear up to the April 2016 exhibition!

Skulptursymposium, Denmark

LeuWebb Projects was recently invited to Denmark to participate in the Gaesteatelier Hollufgard’s Tilsynekomster International Sculpture Symposium 2015. The intensive 10 day forum provided lively discourse and a fertile environment to develop project ideas for site-based works that will be further gestated leading to installation within the grounds of Hollufgard in June, 2016.

An exhibition of the project sketches and models is on view at the Gaesteatelier through October, 2015.

Additional documentation of the symposium’s proceedings are now online.
