And Bend Over Kandinsky

Monday, March 16, 1981 (All day)

And Bend Over Kandinsky

Artist: Bill Burns

Date: March 16 to April 4, 1981

Bill Burns, a Visual Arts Graduate from the Univeristy of Victoria, created a monumental new sculpture at Open space. The original idea for the piece came from Kandinsky's Theory of Colour, in which he proposed an ideal correlation between colour and form (red corresponds with the square, as blue is to the triangle and yellow to the circle). As such, Burns created the basis for an arrangement of six architectural spaces constructed with plywood and drywall.
