Vancouver Public Art: A-maze-ing Laughter

DH Vancouver Staff Mar 16, 2010 7:50 pm

The laughing statues located by English Bay at Morton Park are part of the Vancouver Biennale 2009-2011 edition. Titled “A-maze-ing Laughter” by artist Yue Minjun they have brought exactly that to the visitors they attract on a daily basis. Unlike the other pieces of art in this city, this piece has been very well received and on any given day you will often see people hanging from them or laughing with them (at them?) while posing for a photo or two.

The statues have been so popular I really hope the city keeps these after their 2 year run is over. Furthermore, they have also covered the grass, so no more getting mud all over your fresh new kicks in an attempt to get a close up of these funny guys.
