The world famous Os Gemeos brothers are currently working on a 75 foot tall wall of six gigantic silos as part of their ongoing “Giants” series at this year’s Vancouver Biennial.

“We did not want a conventional two-dimensional wall that we had done before – we wanted something different, special and unique… The connection between water and land on Granville Island, on the False Creek margins, also had a lot to do with the choice of location – for us, the water acts as a vein, symbolizing life, and it is very present in our work.”

The 70-foot tall silos with the total surface area of  23,500 square feet, will all be painted by Sept 7th, with an official public unveiling and celebration on the Island of Granville.

It may be hot as hell in Boston in August, but the Os Gemeos museum retrospective at the Boston ICA, the first for the Brazilian twins in the United States, will be a good reason to go. Known for their immersing installations and playful characters, Os Gemeos will surely turn the museum into their own playground… look forward to this one… it opens August 1, 2012.
