Jonathan Borofsky celebrates human connection at the Vancouver Biennale
Monday July 14th, 2014
NO SOONER HAD Jonathan Borofsky’s new public artwork arisen on the False Creek seawall than kids were taking pictures of it with their parents’ cellphones and cyclists were stopping to shout out “I love your piece!”. The veteran artist’s 24-foot-tall vision of interlocking, multicoloured figures linking and lifting each other is easy to like and hard to miss. The new work for the Vancouver Biennale is a bright, positive statement about people supporting each other.
