Flight Path / Taking Flight at City Atrium Gallery

Flight Path / Taking Flight is a site specific paper installation I created for a show at the Gladstone Hotel in 2014 (view photos of it here). I am pleased to finally get the opportunity to display it in a local venue at City Atrium gallery in North Vancouver. The full piece is made up of six hundred paper crow wings suspended from wire in clusters, but for this current version I’ve included about half of the original number.



The sculpture was inspired by my fascination with watching large flocks of crows moving across the evening sky in spring and fall in their daily commute home to their roost in Burnaby. It feels like a rare opportunity to see so many birds together in one place.



Flight Path / Taking Flight will be on display at City Atrium Gallery until January 9, 2017.

Dates: October 17, 2016 to January 9, 2017
Times: Mon – Fri 8:30am – 5:00pm
Location: North Vancouver City Hall, 141 West 14th Street
