1993-5 Slate Frieze


“The medium of an engraving is light, the carving unravels as you walk. You might see the frieze in passing or stop in close proximity for a moment’s solitary contemplation. There is a notion of continuousness and continuing change and the piece has neither beginning nor end.”

Slate Frieze comprises of 23 rectangular slabs of engraved slate forming a 21m length wall in the Justus Lipsius Building for the Council of the European Union, Brussels.

Located in the conference room foyer, floor no CO50. With dimensions 2.5 x 21 x .3 m.

Commissioned by the European Union in open competition,  European Selection Committee,  advisor Government Art Collection.
