Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite
For the fourth installation at Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite, renowned Vancouver sculptor Elspeth Pratt draws on architectural forms as inspiration to investigate how the built environment circumscribes public space. While her artworks negotiate the line between abstraction and representation, her ideas are manifest through her use of ready-made industrial materials that refer to or negate traditional ideas of permanence and value associated with sculpture.
