Stanley Park Dedications
Location: Stanley Park. Vancouver, BC.
Artist: Rebecca Bayer (with Ten Fifteen Maple)
This project coincided with the 125th anniversary of Stanley Park.
As part of the group residency at Ten Fifteen Maple (Hadden Park Fieldhouse), Rebecca took part in installing a series of twenty-five engraved cedar plaques on the backrests of Stanley Park benches.
The plaques reflect on past and present spaces surrounding each bench.
Rebecca’s series of five plaques are dedicated to the mythologies of local birds and fish around Lost Lagoon. These creatures and their stories represent the variety of species which currently coexist at this location.
