The Below is like the Above

22 August- 8 Oct., 2008

QueenSpecific, the window case next to Dufflet Pastries at 787 Queen Street West,
Opening 22 August, 6-7pm.

Heather Goodchild is intrigued by the symbolism of Freemasonry, alchemy, religion and the mysteries and hidden dangers lurking in fairy tales. She works with fibre to create felt mosaics and sculptural creatures that inhabit her dioramas.
For "The Below is like the Above", Heather has transformed the tall QueenSpecific vitrine into a cathedral where trees stand in for pillars and beasts come to supplicate.

Heather Goodchild lives and works in Toronto and is represented by Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects,

QueenSpecific is a window exhibition space displaying site specific art installations. It is located on Queen St. 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 passer-by.

QueenSpecific is programmed by Toronto based artist Joy Walker.
