Exhibition history: *QueenSpecific, Toronto, ON, December 2011 – January 2012

Column was created for *QueenSpecific, a street level window exhibition space displaying site specific art installations. Thirty-six components based on a two dimensional 18th century tile design are arranged and stacked to create column and base. Column is one of several works that use ornamental motifs as building blocks in grid based, modular constructions.
