Calgary is becoming quite infamous for their quirky and at times controversial art installations. One of the latest temporary instalments has been placed in East Village to help beautify a public space. It’s a 6.7 metre high structure created by American artist Dennis Oppenheim. It first appeared at Venice Biennale in 1997, and since then has been famous around the world. It’s a New England style church placed upside down with its steeple in the ground. Simply turning the structure in the opposite direction, elicits questioning among viewers.
The art piece is on loan to Calgary for the next five years, and is definitely worthy of a visit and a picture or two!
