This sculpture by artist Michael Kinghorn engages with the word “overhaul” in two ways:
- A term frequently used by firefighters, overhaul refers to the stripping of walls and floors in order to search for trapped heat. Similarly, the layers of this sculpture gradually dissolve to reveal different textures and metals.
- Overhauling can also refer to an act of restoration, specifically in Kinghorn’s overhauling of materials to create the structure. In a reflection of the sustainable design of the building, the majority of the materials were repurposed from discarded firefighting equipment, including stainless steel drawers from an old fire truck.
This project was made possible with the support and assistance of Ottawa Fire Services.
