Christy Thompson: starlings & caverns
September 28, 2002 - January 5, 2003
Toronto-based artist Christy Thompson transforms our youth-oriented Explorations Gallery with her installation starlings & caverns. A maker of extraordinary objects from materials she uncovers in dollar stores and other unlikely places, Thompson draws upon her imagination and memories of Ontario landscapes to create a cavelike environment which visitors are invited to explore. Interactive stations compliment the exhibition, and an interpretive area places the exhibition in the context of object-making, installation art, and Surrealism.
