It is actions seen across the globe on a Saturday night – actually on every nights the 7 days which happens to have an a in it. There are always a few who have just that little bit too much and end up creating a scene, a spectacle and often a blunder in to the deal. Yet in Halifax, Canada, moments of a intoxicated characteristics are not limited to its human denizens: the lampposts are at it too.
On the beachfront boardwalk of the town three more intense for use lampposts can be seen in all their intoxicated wonder. One has flattened and is relaxing comatose on the floor while his involved buddy looks on. The third is doing something quite unspeakable in to the sea.
The lampposts are a cooperation between Waterfront Development Corporation and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Together they have introduced the perform of duo Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg to the Halifax beachfront. Hanson and Sonnenberg are graduate students of the Nova Scotia Higher education of Art and Design so there is a local connection.
The three lampposts are actually a contemporary way of diptych where two items of art are signed up with together. In this situation the relationship is in the manoeuvres of the anthropomorphic group of 3. The recumbent light and its involved viewer are known as together Got Intoxicated, Dropped Down. The third – the one reducing itself in to the sea – is called (no real surprise here) Water fall. Together they type a diptych known as The Way Things Are.
Unsurprisingly, the group of 3 have drawn an equivalent quantity of lovers and critics but most Haligonians (that someone from Halifax to you and me) are unfazed by the sculpture. In reality, delayed into the evening the variety of apparently drunk things seems to consistently improve on the boardwalk. If ever there was a situation of lifestyle emulating art, this must be it.
