RUPEN on view in the Natural Light Window (506 Adelaide West) to June 30. 416-504-1311. Rating: NNN
if you need to know there's artout there 24/7, check out the Natural Light Window, a storefront spot that is exactly what its name implies.Right now, the Window features a simple but compelling installation by Rupen. The artist displays three sets -- in red, blue and black -- of wall-mounted sculptures, each consisting of four variations on the insert used to keep big-holed 45s centred on a turntable.
They look great and obviously evoke strong sentiments in viewers who spend more time in the neighbourhood clubs (the Window is on Adelaide West) than in conventional art galleries.
A little notebook nailed to the gallery's door is filling up fast with enthusiastic requests for details on price and retail availability.
Rupen is also showing work at She Said Boom, 372 College.
