Project: A commission for a sculpture for the new city centre piazza by Saint Anne’s Cathedral
Place: Saint Anne’s central Belfast
Date: Installed November 2009
Description: A 7m high mirror polished stainless steel with internal lighting a laser cut pattern with coloured perspex insets and a life size figure cast in slate resin. The figure faces Saint Anne’s Cathedral.
Funded by: Department of Social development
Commissioned by: Turnus Ltd and Art and Business Northern Ireland
Agent: Art and Business Northern Ireland
Notes: This sculpture is designed as a still piece, it uses the site the Cathedral reflects in the narrow part of the polished steel base and the figure hangs above the Cathedral.
A pattern cut in the side gives the pieces some depth, colour and changes it at night, with the light perpex behind. Also lightening the top of the steel work.
