Ryerson Artspace: Parker Kay & Michael Abel | 1st Flr - Artbar
Originally, the architecture of the white cube was designed in a way that would allow the gallery to melt away in order to focus the viewer's attention towards the artwork in the space. Rather than a void space, the gallery has turned into a space that says "whatever is inside these walls is art," which gives these architectural features great power. Parker Kay and Michael Abel examine the architectural features of a gallery space and use these materials as the basis for sculptural installation. The walls, the floor, the wood and the drywall of the gallery become the artwork, negating any need for the inclusion of traditional art objects.
