Wildlife-guard Chair by Mickael Minghetti & Andres Jimenez Monge. This installation was part of the Winter Stations exhibition on Woodbine Beach, Toronto, Feb 21-Mar 31.
The official description of this artwork is rather succinct compared to some of the others!
Inspired by the northern cardinal bird – a specie present all-year round around Lake Ontario – the station seeks to engage the visitors with Ontario’s wildlife. The diversity of species taking refuge in the dense urban environment is both remarkable to observe, and critical to preserve.
