Using found clothing and plaster casts of body parts, Valérie Blass creates work that defies simple definition. She works with models and specific textiles, moulding these materials to create fixed tableaux.
Blass also incorporates casting, carving, and assemblages of objects into her sculptures, drawing on realism, minimalism and Cubism to explore what she calls the “in-between” spaces of abstract, human and inanimate forms.
The Toronto Triathlon is a unique urban triathlon on the downtown highways of Canada’s largest city, a journey through Toronto’s unique landscape, as concrete jungles dissolve into picturesque hills and valleys.
The event includes a Duathlon, a Sprint course (750m swim, 20K bike, 5K run) and an Olympic distance (5K swim, 40K bike, 10K run). The first wave of competitors starts at 9:30am at Coronation Park in front of the gates of Exhibition Place. The Bike course takes the competitors onto the Gardiner Expressway and up the Don Valley Parkway up to Eglinton Avenue and back.
