city fabric, Vancouver, 2015

Produced in partnership between 221A Artist Run Centre and Burrard Arts Foundation, City Fabric is an installation located under the south side of Burrard Bridge, directly above the seawall, by Vancouver-based artist Rebecca Bayer and artist/architect Matthew Soules.

The installation is made of construction safety netting, a material designed for temporary use that has become iconic in Vancouver. 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.

Project Support
