Video by filmmaker Josephine Anderson: This monster-sized anvil is like a giant violin conch shell bringing you the sounds of the ocean

Tuesday August 14th, 2018

Huge works of art are standard fare at the Vancouver Biennale — the exhibition regularly includes large-scale sculpture that confronts the audience in big ways. But this year, the giant anvil that’s been dropped in its midst by artist Maskull Lasserre (who you may have bumped into beforeat CBC Arts) might seem a little incongruous with its surroundings…until you get closer.

In this video by filmmaker Josephine Anderson, you’ll meet Lasserre and his new work, Acoustic Anvil: A Small Weight to Forge the Sea, as he explains the thought process that went into its creation.
