Ron Huebner

What you don’t know won’t hurt you

555 Hamilton St

On the wall of a dark gallery space, there is a large piece of canvas shows a print of wolves in a forest. On the floor, there is a small glowing speaker as well several natural and cast steel bones.

In this installation, Ron Huebner combines sculpture, photographic silkscreen canvases, and sound to create an environment in which to explore and question many of our basic motivations — motivations which are often obscured by an endless stream of details and commitments which absorb our time and attention. In the entryway of the gallery, animal and human bones are scattered among cast stainless steel bones. The rear section of the gallery contains a fabricated steel stove placed in the centre between two large black and white photographic canvases. The stove structure emits the sound of wind.
