Christopher Chapman Memorial
A memorial sculpture has been commissioned to honour Christopher Chapman, an eminent Canadian filmmaker whose honours included an Academy Award (“Oscar”) and the Order of Canada. His Oscar was for his iconic film “A Place to Stand”, created for the Ontario Pavilion at Expo ’67 in Montreal. The sculpture, to be installed outside the long-term care facility where he resided for the last three years of his life, is of a tree, with “summer” and “winter” halves. It’s called “The Seasons” — Christopher’s very first film, which won Canadian film of the year, was titled “The Seasons”. The sculpture is of laser-cut aluminum, with its surfaces ground and polished. Installation mid-2016.
