Sculptures to adorn creek site

EIGHT sculptures will be built along the banks of Suzhou Creek in three years, with the first two set up by the end of this month.

The two statues will symbolize the riverfront feature and past industrial civilization, as lots of factories, including Shanghai Matches Factory and Shanghai Beer Factory, used to stand along the creek.

The other statues are now in the planning stage and the pubic will be invited to select appropriate designs, the Changning Planning and Land Authority said.

One sculpture, entitled Moment, will be erected at the Hongqiao Riverfront Park, the former site of the Shenxin No. 1 Textile Factory while the other, named Change, will be set up in the former site of the Tianyuan Chemical Plant. Both are created by Yang Jinsong, a professor at the China Academy of Art.
