I dropped by Burrard Arts gallery space yesterday afternoon to see Drawing On The Past, a small show curated by Booooooom, and was pleased to see this thread installation by Hot Tea. I’ve seen photos of this on Instagram shared by other people, but it’s even better in person.
Hot Tea was the artist in residence over the summer at Burrard Arts. He creates public and installation art almost exclusively with yarn. You may have noticed a few isometric forms on chain link fences around the city, and this is also the work of Hot Tea.
I am inspired by this installation because it takes the simple material of yarn and transforms it into a three dimensional piece. It has me itching to create a new yarn tree somewhere, but maybe I should just find a chain link fence…

It feels like an exciting time in Vancouver arts at the moment because of the work being done by Vancouver Biennale. There were installs of new public art pieces around the city over the summer, including the huge new mural by Os Gemeos on Granville Island and the sculpture pictured here by Jonathan Borofsky.
It was a beautiful day to be outside on Saturday so I decided to walk over to Olympic Village, where this is installed, and take a look. It’s in a great location along the seawall with plenty of space around it. The work is made of painted and molded galvanized steel, featuring pixelated colourful figures stacked to the sky. It’s a striking sculpture and will be a welcome splash of colour in the area when the rainy days finally come around.
Visit the Vancouver Biennale website to learn more, and for a short audio tour of the work.
