Gumhead

is an public installation by Vancouver artist Douglas Coupland who has made his head available to be vandalized – well an over-sized fiberglass sculpture of his head at least. Douglas Coupland invites public to cover his head in chewing gum.

In conjunction with his solo exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Coupland installed a seven foot black resin and polyester sculpture on the lawn in front of the gallery. Called ‘Gumhead‘ and described by the artist as a “gum-based, crowd sourced, publicly interactive, self-portrait“, the striking sculpture has a very imposing Soviet-era aesthetic to it.
