Andrew Jones: You Spin Me Round at QueenSpecific Gallery
This exhibition at Toronto’s QueenSpecific Gallery takes place from May 8 to June 16, 2009.
You Spin Me Round is an interactive kinetic sculpture created by Andrew Jones which uses ribbon and a motor to create an always-changing spiral. As a counterpoint to Jones’ furniture designs, QueenSpecific offered a different opportunity, a chance to make something impossibly light, whose only purpose was to delight the passerby.
Andrew Jones is a Toronto-based designer who specializes in developing furniture and lighting products for manufacturers, as well as architecture and interiors. His clients are located in Canada, the United States and Great Britain. His designs are included in the permanent collection of the Royal Ontario Museum and the Design Exchange in Toronto. Jones teaches furniture design at the schools of architecture at the University of Toronto and the University of Pennsylvania.
Programmed by Toronto-based artist Joy Walker, QueenSpecific is a window exhibition space displaying site-specific art installations. It is located on Queen Street West adjacent to and sponsored by Dufflet Pastries. Artists exhibiting in the space are asked to consider the dimensions of the window, the locale and the potential to engage with the casual passerby.
The exhibition opening takes place from 6:00-7:00pm on Friday, May, 8, 2009. QueenSpecific is located next to Dufflet Pastries at 787 Queen Street West in Toronto.
