Lara Favaretto at the Rennie Collection

It's a great time to duck into an art gallery these days - not only for some air conditioning relief from the blazing sun, but also for some wicked artwork that's graced the city.

Over at the Rennie Collection, they are showcasing the work of Lara Favaretto. This is the "first Canadian solo exhibition by Italian artist Lara Favaretto.  Based in Turin,  her work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions at institutions throughout the world, including MoMA PS1, New York; Salon d’Honneur du Grand Palais, Paris; dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel; and Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art, Turin. She is the recipient of the 2011 Querini Stampalia Prize for Young Italian Artists and the 2005 Venice Biennale Young Italian Art Prize."

Whether it's a cube of degrading confetti, titled "Village of the Damned".... 

...or a room full of spinning car wash sponges, named after famous couples...

...or a room full of confetti blowing in the wind to create a unique landscape....

.... this exhibit is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Lara Favaretto's Collected Works is on now at the Rennie Collection until October 3.
