The Chignecto Balance

The Chignecto Balance sculptor

A public art installation by Canadian sculptors Mary-Ann Liu & Paul Slipper, December, 2020.

This installation encompasses rain and kinetic movement in considering the effects of climate change on the delicate balance of human activities and nature, focusing on local plant life, bird life, and industry.

The two upper elements of the sculpture highlight the Chignecto region's highway transportation corridor and migratory bird routes. The cattail represents plantlife and serves as a balance point on which these two elements pivot.

Allowing the transport truck and heron to each turn into the wind exposes the viewer to the constant struggle between human forces and nature.

Description

The Lorne Street Storm Water Mitigation Trail is a new trail around a storm water mitigation pond in Sackville. The trail starts by traveling along the back the junkyard on Lorne Street, along an old railbed. The trail then loops around the circular pond with an island in the middle, between the railroad tracks and St. James Street. Another trail extends out to access Charles Street. Off the end of the trail from Charles Street is a small path down to the edge of the pond. The pond is mostly surrounded by open fields but there are a few patches of trees. There are several statues, sculptures and benches around the trail.

You can also access the trail from the Sackville Waterfowl Park.
