Sculpture Saturday – A New Sculpture in Front of the AGO

well it’s new to me

From the AGO newsletter – Toronto June 20, 2022 – The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) has installed its first-ever public art commission, a new sculpture by acclaimed contemporary artist Brian Jungen. Renowned for his artworks made of repurposed consumer goods, Couch Monster: Sadzěʔ yaaghęhch’ill (2022) is Jungen’s first large-scale work in bronze. A poetic tribute to the plight of creatures in captivity, Jungen modeled second-hand leather furniture into the figure of a performing elephant, measuring five and a half meters long, and 4 meters tall.
