Example text

We still have an enormous amount of free space in North America and ride through it like cowboys. The fact that we haven’t had these ancient traditions allows us to get away with it. The Japanese don’t mind working in the tradition of the master and doing the slight incremental variation by focusing on that difference, whereas we have the gross motor skills running. The spaces I work with are generally big and require a large-scale work to have a strong visual impact. The big swath is more important than the concept or idea.

Yardwork, (2000) created at La Gabelle, north of Trois Rivi`eres in Qu´ebec, is the first work Dougherty has ever conceived and created in Canada. A gathering of seven 20-foot towers made of braided red maple saplings, Yardwork’s swirling wooden shapes, drawn in space, are surrounded by a swooping braided form that acts as an aesthetic container for this highly charged, large-scale installation. The actual site situated next to the historic La Gabelle hydro dam built in 1924 is steeped in history.

To me this site has a kind of wildness about it. If you drive through it onto the dam on the other side you will see it was a backwater before there was a throughway. The river itself seems to project a kind of primal magnetism. While working here, I have watched fishermen, boaters, lovers, bikeriders, running children, and the mad hatters who speed by on offthe-road vehicles go by. The one-way bridge and the railroad crossing nearby regularly result in small traffic jams. As the drivers slow down and look toward the river, they can’t help but see the sculpture.
