A - SCREAMING HEADS
Burks Falls is a typical northern Canadian town until you turn a corner and meet Peter Camani, a high school art teacher and sculptor whos been creating mystery and magic on this land since he came here in search of solitude in 1981. Camani has spent more than 2 decades managing the design and construction of tons of concrete forms across acres of land, in often-desperate conditions. Some of his screaming head sculptures reach 22 feet in height and weigh close to thirty tons. I think that most people, whether theyre religious or not, feel something here, whether it be spiritualism or a closeness with nature, or just anything to do with the land and all the ancestors, people that have lived here before, says Camani. I think that theres just a feeling of peace and calm that kind of comes over anybody as soon as they come through the gate.
