Rebecca Belmore’s Wave Sound sculpture opens at Green Point in Gros Morne

Artist Rebecca Belmore listens to the sound of the landscape at Green Point through Wave Sound.

Listening to the sound of the waves at Green Point has always been a powerful experience. Now, through the artwork of Rebecca Belmore, you are able to listen to the landscape even more intensely.

As part of the LandMarks 2017 project, Rebecca Belmour’s project Wave Sound has installed four sculptures in national parks across Canada: Banff National Park (AB), Pukaskwa National Park (ON), Georgian Bay Islands National Park (ON), and Gros Morne National Park (NL). Each sculpture responds to the landscape, and “amplifies the living sounds that are particular to the location.”

Green Point, the location of Wave Sound.

At Green Point in Gros Morne, the cone-shaped Wave Sound sculpture amplifies the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore of Green Point, and encourages the listener to pause and listen intently to the sound of the landscape, and consider our relationship to the land.

The Wave Sound sculpture will be at Green Point throughout the 2017 season. For more information about the LandMarks 2017 projects, check out their website.
