A collaboration between Imu Chan and Rebecca Bayer, Storytelling was commissioned as part of the rejuvination of Chief Mathias Joe Park. Sitting in silhouette on either side of the park entry path, the sculptures mimic the form of the ‘Twin Sisters,’ the twin mountain peaks that tower over North Vancouver. Special thanks to the Squamish Nation for providing the story: Wa Áyasnewas chat ta Swwú7mesh iy ta Steín (The Peace between the Squamish and the Haida Nations).
