This is an untitled work by Stephen Brathwaite that incorporates steel, granite slabs, and coloured glass, depicting two life sized climbers on a rock wall. It is situated in City Hall, in the main council chamber. The door was open one day in February, so I went in and took the opportunity to photograph it.
In the adjoining hall, an orchestra was in the midst of rehearsals.
A strange place for such an abstract sculpture.ReplyDelete
Very interesting sculpture and I would have enjoyed the rehearsal.ReplyDelete
Quite an unusual art feature in a council chamber. Maybe there is a message there, that though memebers may hit brick walls, they keep climbing.ReplyDelete
Wonderful sculptures with a story to tell.ReplyDelete
It's different from the usual, I like it!ReplyDelete
Amazing art, so special!ReplyDelete
The figures look like layers of stone. isn't it just like a blogger to wander through an open door!ReplyDelete
Interesting sculpture. Thank you for posting your photosReplyDelete
I think in that room, its a message to work together for the good.
What a great piece of art.ReplyDelete
@Catalyst: I think that given that the activity stresses teamwork, it sends a message.ReplyDelete
@Denise: I should have stayed for a bit!
@Nancy: it appeals to the rock climber in me.
@Marleen: it is quite different.
@Marianne: it must have taken a long while with the glass for the figures.
@Janey: they did look like stone, but they're not!
@Magwyn: you're welcome.
...a very interesting installation.ReplyDelete
Well done on spotting that open door William ☺ it's an unusual sculpture, a surprising discovery oui! The music was a fab bonus!ReplyDelete
Great place to blog from!ReplyDelete
I like this piece! Thanks for slipping in to photograph it.ReplyDelete
Okay. That's interesting. The wall is interesting. But what does it all mean? Does the wall have a special significance?ReplyDelete
An interesting sculpture.ReplyDelete
That's a major piece of sculpture. He shows lots of movement and strength.ReplyDelete
@Janis: I certainly think so!ReplyDelete
@Tom: it is!
@Grace: I've known it was there, but most times I've been in here, either the door's been locked or there's a council meeting going on.
@Cloudia: I agree.
@Sharon: you're welcome.
@Lowell: perhaps politics can drive us all up a wall?
@Karl: it is!
@Red: he did very good work with it.
The wall concept has some interesting connotations these days, but I like the piece of artwork (if not the real idea of building a wall... :)ReplyDelete
Great art. I like itReplyDelete

@Beth: nobody stopped me!
@Susie: I think so too.

Our city's sculptures of The Climbers is located outside. Somehow that seems more appropriate. I do love the tulips that introduce the photos.ReplyDelete
Very interesting and so darn creative!ReplyDelete
Nice photos also William.
That's an unusual installation. I really like it. But your new tulip header is a real attention getter. I'm looking forward to this year's crop!ReplyDelete
I like those "men".ReplyDelete
That is just hilarious! I'm not sure I like it, though.ReplyDelete
@Mari: I do too.ReplyDelete
@Kay: I have to get this year's spring header set up.
@Linda: it is, yes.
@Orvokki: so did I.
@Norma: it is!
@Jennifer: I do.
I missed this one in 2017. It's wonderful.ReplyDelete
