Blacks Fasteners supports "Fanfare" Sculpture project
November 11, 2014
Blacks Fasteners are proud to be involved in an art installation project which is going to make a spectacular addition to the Canterbury landscape.
Fanfare is a bold, contemporary, public sculpture which is 20 metres in diameter, weighs 25 tonnes and has 360 separate one metre diameter wind-powered “pinwheels” covering the surface of the structure.
The sculpture has been kindly gifted to the Christchurch City Council by the City of Sydney and will be installed by SCAPE Public Art Trust at Chaney’s Corner on the northern motorway entrance to the city.
The work was originally suspended from Sydney Harbour Bridge for the City of Sydney’s 2005 New Year celebrations.
All of the “pinwheels” spin freely in the wind and will be lit in response to special occasions in the Christchurch calendar.
At this time when Christchurch has lost many of its landmarks, Fanfare promises to play an important role in creating a new and dynamic entranceway to the city, and will add a vibrant new identity to the Christchurch cityscape.
Fulton Hogan and Leighs Construction are completing the construction of “Fanfare” and associated road works at no cost to either Scape or the city, no small undertaking! Blacks Fasteners are proud to support this important project by supplying all bolts and fittings at no cost.
