Description of Work:
This artwork consists of two mutually reflective artworks. "Shadow of Flight and the Celestial Pool" is a slab of sandblasted and stained concrete inlaid with fibre optics . "Khenko" is an aluminum and steel weather vane in the shape of a heron.
"Shadow of Flight and the Celestial Pool", represents a pool of water, overlaid with a shadow of the great heron in flight. The twinkling lights represent the stars of the night sky, a new constellation.
"Khenko" is named after the First Nations' mythical Great Blue Heron; the large evocative and whimsical weather vane was inspired by this serene bird which resides year round in the natural settings of Richmond.
