If you’re looking for some art to gaze at outside this summer, look no further than the Distillery District where your eyes will be in for quite a feast. Art installations are now set up in this designated area because the Winter Stations Exhibition, now rebranded as the Spring Stations, was postponed because of the pandemic. Running until the end of July, you can now expect to see some large pieces of incredibly unique art if you decide to take a visit to the Distillery District. Here is a taste of the visuals to take in.
The Epitonium was created by a four-person Iranian art design team, M. Yengiabad. Visitors can actually step instead this art piece, inspired by sea shell snail, and can look upward to the sky. Because it is located on the Distillery’s main thoroughfare, you can expect an amazing view from inside this art piece.
This piece was created by a German duo called Heidendgriess. It’s made of colourful trapezoid boxes and it’s look is reminiscent of the Apple spinning wheel cursor. This piece is supposed to represent the act of waiting while keeping visitors distant as it is located south of Parliament Street due to its need to lay on a flat surface and not the cobbled streets of the Distillery District.
Four Small Beginnings
Jack and Charlie Leather are U.K artists, and brothers, who designed this inverted pyramid that holds white pine saplings on its lower shelves. This piece actively encourages and promotes those who visit this piece to take these white pine saplings home to plant and will replenish the stock of saplings until the installation is completed.
Arc De Blob
This piece is a colourful version of the Arc De Triomphe is everything you could want when gawking at some art: It’s bright, large and endlessly colourful. Visitors use a QR code to animate more designs on and around the archway on this piece. This has probably been the most well-received piece! Torontonians love how colourful and Insta worthy the Arc De Blob is!
