The Gathering

Installation: Branscombe House, Richmond, BC

This life-size sculpture of a picnic basket overflowing with food is the collaborative effort of 63 community members, aged 8 to 80. Each of the participants selected a food to sculpt out of polymer clay. The individual sculptures were then integrated into a single work, with a sculptural shopping list crediting all of the participants. The work is permanently installed outdoors in a new public picnic area.
