Vancouver, Canada. The Vancouver Biennale announces its latest public art installation “Trans Am Totem”, by Vancouver artist Marcus Bowcott. The 10 meter high, 11,340 kilogram (33 foot, 25,000 pound) sculpture, located at Quebec Street and Milross Avenue, is composed of five real scrap cars stacked upon an old growth cedar tree. The artwork considers our consumer “out with the old, in with the new” culture in relation to the site, its history and Vancouver’s evolving identity.
