Seeking Out In-Your-Face Sculptures in Vancouver, Canada
Three-thousand-pound engagement rings, coils of yellow steel, and zombie-like bronze figures sans heads are just some of the larger-than-life sculptures that evoke conversation in Vancouver’s public parks and walkways. Many pieces were once part of the Vancouver Biennale, an ongoing open-air exhibition that showcases the sometimes-controversial work of celebrated artists from around the world. Some installations are temporary, while others find permanent homes as legacy pieces. But don’t expect to see Device to Root Out Evil, any longer. After two-and-a-half years, the quirky sculpture of upside down church positioned askew on its spire was removed.
