Last Saturday September 25th at 4 pm, artist Peter Gazendam took a group of 14 on a well paced walking tour, visiting four downtown public sculptures, the walking tour was an event related to his work in the current CAG exhibition Following A Line, on view until November 7.
“The impetus for Peter Gazendam’s casual walking tour of four of Vancouver’s public sculptures is A Saloon Keeper, A Newspaper, Two Wars, A Doorman. This new work, which is a founding part of the group exhibition Following A Line, uses as its base a series of collages made from snapshots of innocuous and modest, yet somewhat odious, public sculptures that the artist encountered in his daily routes through the city. Like the collages, which Gazendam has cut out of their environment and recomposed, he further fragmented the sculptures by discussing their partial histories and formal properties through a highly subjective lens.”
Following A Line also includes work by Pablo Bronstein, Susanne Kriemann, Kyla Mallett, Alex Morrison, Frances Stark and Paul Sietsema, and runs until November 7, 2010.
