A SCULPTURAL VERSION OF EASTER ISLAND’S MONOLITHS IS HEADED FOR LIBERTY VILLAGE

BREUNING1 OLAF BREUNING, the Swiss-born, New York-based artist, will soon begin assembling his first-ever public art installation in TORONTO’s Liberty Village.  Funded by the City of Toronto’s “percent planning” (a development levy), “The Guardians” is based on Breuning’s earlier work, “Easter Bunnies”/2004.  The “Bunnies” refer to the monolithic sculptures found on Easter Island.  OLAF BREUNING:  “With these huge things standing there, you think, ‘How could these have arrived?’ They look like they could fall apart in a second, these stones that are standing on edge or burned. I tried to create a sculpture with the same idea. They look like nothing is balanced, despite being made out of types of metal; so while they’re in fact very steady, hopefully when you look at them, you’ll think, ‘Oh, they could just fall down.’”
