Exhibition Description:

This exhibition uses augmented reality to breathe life into the Gargoyles and Grotesques that keep an eye on Toronto. Gargoyles are in fact water spouts that provide a method of drainage; otherwise the sculpture is considered a grotesque. Often sculpted as frightening, gargoyles, in addition to protecting buildings from erosion, also serve as guardians to ward off evil and encourage the viewer to seek sanctuary within. Curated by Hans G. Bathija.
