Government of Canada, Bank of Canada Plaza, Ottawa, ON

Flight was exhibited (alongside Moses) in Expo ’67, the 1967 international world’s fair, which took place in Montreal.

 

Flight’s strong horizontal axis is unique in Etrog’s 1960s oeuvre, a body of work more commonly associated with vertical figures. Moreover, the work heralds his “links” period as the link motif appears at the centre of the composition and used to connect the two horizontal elements, which compose the work.
