Now that the Games are over The Games are Open can be viewed from Friday, September 10th.
A project by German artists Folke Kobberling and Martins Kaltwasser, this massive sculpture representing a bulldozer is made of 1,000 wheat board panels liberated from the neighbouring 2010 Olympic and Paralympic
Presented by Other Sights for Artists’ Projects. The Games are Open is curated by Barbara Cole and is the second project of When the Hosts Come Home, a series of artists’ works that address issues of sustainability in the development of South East False Creek and will deteriorate gradually, becoming fodder to be offered to the gardens throughout the neighbouring development.
The constructing crew is formed by students of UBC, Emily Carr and Langara.
