King Edward VII Equestrian Statue Floating Down the Don River ~ In Queen’s Park, Toronto, there is a 15-foot bronze sculpture of King Edward VII on a horse, first erected in colonial India in 1922. Following India’s independence in 1947, it was removed and placed in storage. Toronto politician and businessman Harry Jackman heard of its existence and paid for it to be moved to Toronto, citing his desire for a “great equestrian statue.” Despite protests from the public, Jackman and a group of wealthy Torontonians fundraised enough money to have the statue placed in Queen’s Park in 1969. The statue still bears the original colonial plaque stating that the statue of the British King is of “The Emperor of India.” This is a performance where we will dump a life-size replica of the sculpture in the Don River and it will float down the river on a weekly basis. For the Don River Valley Park, curated by Kari Cwynar.
Sundays Oct 29, Nov 5, Nov 12, and Nov 19, 1-4pm. Viewable approx. 1pm at Riverdale Bridge (staircase access from the West end through Riverdale Park/baseball diamond, or wheelchair accessible from the East end), and 3pm around Queen St. Bridge (wheelchair accessible).
