Roberley Bell’s site specific installation: from here-through-the window-the street-yet-inside-blooms
on view at Stantec Window Gallery, Toronto, Canada, September 21 – December 20, 2017.
Bell explains: The window as a venue is of interest to me for both its architectural and symbolic reference. I wake each day, no matter to where I am in the world, and the view from my window frames my day contextualizing a sense of place. My proposed project, from here-through-the window, is positioned between the inside and the outside, the natural and the man made.
