Vancouver Public Art: Skin of Time

Dec 19 2017, 12:12 pm

This piece by Korean artist Choi Tae Hoon is titled “Skin of Time” and sits in Coal Harbour at the end of Bute Street in Harbour Green Park. The location will be remembered by many Vancouverites as the famous upside down church was once on display there. This piece is part of the Vancouver Biennale.

At first glance I thought it looked like a baseball bat, forgive me art snobs as I was far away from it, however, the roots at the bottom indicate that it is a fallen tree. If you are in the neighbourhood make sure to get close as this piece is to be admired up close. The steel mesh has an amazing texture as can be seen in the photo above.

If you ask me I still prefer the upside down church, nonetheless this is a nice addition to the Vancouver public art scene.
