LeuWebb Projects embraces the process of creative exploration to produce moments of beauty in the public realm. In their art practice, they seek to engage people with both the tangible and the ephemeral aspects of everyday life by creating art that stimulates curiosity, suggests play, and inspires its participants.
As LeuWebb Projects, their work has been exhibited at venues including Harbourfront Centre, Toronto; Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Toronto; and Gæsteatelier Hollufgård, Denmark. They have been the recipients of several awards including the Jurors’ Choice, Toronto Design Offsite Festival and Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Grants, and have created commissioned projects for private collections in Canada.
Founded by Christine Leu and Alan Webb, their collaborative practice operates at a variety of scales and across a range of disciplines. Light, space, texture and sound are key components of their work that they weave together through the innovative use of materials and responsive technologies to create site-specific art that is not only seen, but is also experienced.
Christine Leu is an artist, architect, photographer, and teacher. She’s interested in unique communities that manage to thrive in the everyday. Alan Webb is also an artist and architect, with an overly broad range of interests that includes field recordings, tactility in museum environments, and volcanoes. He’s currently a DJ on a local community radio station and is rehabilitating an old cinema lighting marquee.They have lived and worked in Montreal, New York, London, Denmark, Rome and Helsinki, and currently reside in Toronto.
