Placemaker art installation at City Hall seeks to create dialogue about the collision of life and art
The City is pleased to announce the installation of the “Out from Out Where X” sculpture in front of City Hall on Thursday, August 26. The sculpture is part of Saskatoon’s Placemaker Temporary Public Art Program.
“Out from Out Where X,” created by Bryan Faubert, is a figure-based metal sculpture that constructs a cultural and ethnic, gender-fluid hybrid. The root systems, which extend from the figure’s head, suggest our need to create a greater bond with our natural environment. Everything/one is connected through this.
Prior to the installation, Flaubert will be visiting various locations in Saskatoon with the sculpture, inviting the public to engage in conversation and dialogue about art in collision with everyday life. He will also be introducing his ‘Shadow Bombing’ mural projection device; a cut out box of his intuitive-line figurative compositions. These engagement opportunities will be taking place from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. Monday, August 23 to Wednesday, August 25 in various locales across the city.
In addition, based on suggestions from locals, Faubert will be completing Shadow Bombs in the evenings of August 23 to 25 at various locations throughout the City, concluding at City Hall August 26. The “Out from Out Where X” sculpture will be installed at 1:00 p.m. August 26 and Faubert will project the last of the shadow murals through the sculpture and onto City Hall at 10:00 p.m. that evening.
Locations for the Shadow Bombs and engagement opportunities will be posted to Flaubert’s Instagram account (@kid_be_ski) and the City’s social media accounts will be tagged.
The City, in collaboration with the Business Improvement Districts, manages the Placemaker Program to add significance to civic spaces through temporary public art. These temporary exhibits transform public spaces and engage with audiences to promote an appreciation for contemporary art practices.
