Polar Bear on Thin Ice

Promenade des Artistes

Open in google map
From December 4 to 19 2022
From December 3, Espace pour la vie is presenting Polar Bear on Thin Ice, an artistic initiative aimed at raising awareness of the urgency of fighting climate change, on the Promenade des Artistes in the Quartier des Spectacles. The work was donated to Montréal Space for Life by Équiterre.

It represents a mighty polar bear sculpted in ice over a life-size bronze skeleton. The artwork displayed outdoors gradually melts to reveal the bronze skeleton. The sculpture symbolizes climate change and its impact on the destruction of the polar bear’s habitat. This work is part of the Ice Bear Project by world-renowned British artist Mark Coreth who specializes in sculpting animals in motion. Between 2009 and 2015, the work was exhibited in Copenhagen, London, Vancouver, Montréal, the City of Québec, Ottawa and Toronto.

Stop by the Quartier des spectacles to see the ice sculpture of the polar bear, symbol of species decline.
