City Fabric

City Fabric is a project by Vancouver-based artist Rebecca Bayer and artist/architect Matthew Soules, commissioned with 221A Gallery and Burrard Arts Foundation in cooperation with the City of Vancouver. The installation is made up of construction safety netting, a material designed for temporary use that has become iconic in Vancouver—a city that since the 1980s has been under intensive real estate speculation and development. Typically used to protect passersby from construction hazards, ten sections of the netting (amounting to 800 lineal feet) have been stretched between the concrete piers of the Burrard Street Bridge. City Fabric cherishes the temporary permanence of construction debris netting; beautiful, impoverished for its utilitarian use, yet profoundly normal.
