Cardboard Beach

[06.06.14 – 15.06.14]



06 June 2014 – 15 June 2014 Los Carpinteros have been selected to create the public installation ‘Cardboard Beach’ that will take over a public square in Toronto as part of the Luminato Festival. As described by the duo, it is “an illusion, the essence of a beach in a dry, urban space, with umbrellas, deck chairs, changing booths and breakwaters.” The installation, entirely created out of cardboard, will act as the central hub of the Festival and reflects how their oeuvre occupies an intriguing and ambiguous area between conceptualism, activism and formalism, as well as how it stretches the concept of sculpture to include architectural constructions.
