A-Mazing Laughter, a sculpture by China’s Yue Minjun, is being installed at the Morton Triangle, near the corner of Denman Street and Davie Street in Vancouver’s famous West End.
The installation will feature several figurative sculptures depicting Yue Min Jun’s famous Laughing Figures. The Vancouver Biennale blog did a feature on some of Yue Min Jun’s work earlier this summer.
The current sculpture that occupies the Morton Triangle is the Vancouver Biennale Legacy Work by France’s Bernar Venet called Arcs 217.5 X 13. It will be relocated to Sunset Beach.
