Fassi - Borden Park

Fassi customer Encore Trucking & Transport Ltd. helps to install 11 sculptures in an Edmonton park with a Fassi F155A.0.24 e-active loader crane

Edmonton (Canada) - At the beginning of July, Fassi customer Encore Trucking & Transport Ltd. assisted in the installation of 11 new sculptures in Borden Park (Edmonton), with the help of a Fassi F155A.0.24 e-active crane mounted on a Hino flat deck truck. The installation took place over two days and is part of an initiative from the Edmonton Arts Council, which takes works of art out of the studio and places them in an accessible and highly-visible public setting.

The 11 sculptures of varying textures, shapes and scales are by four female artists and can be found scattered throughout the park on concrete bases. The Fassi crane can be seen in the photo lifting “Living in Between” (2014), one of the three featured works by polish-born artist Agnieszka Koziarz. Koziarz’ steel sculptures explore the themes of immigrant experience: home, displacement, disorientation and individual identity.
