THE PLAQUE HAS BEEN VANDALISED
As the plaque describing this sculpture has been painted over I had difficulty finding any information relating to this structure which could well have been a 5G communications mast or a bee friendly structure.
After some online searching I now know that the seven metre tall structure is a “slender aluminium sculpture” with a “simple stacked cellular grid”.
I later came Dublin City Council’s description: “Corban Walker has created an elegant, large-scale work based on many configurations of a cellular grid.”
“The interplay between projecting and recessed sections of the sculpture will create a lively, joyful vision of simplicity that belies the complexity of its making. Standing at over 7 metres high, the minimalist work will enhance the reflective and meditative environment of the duck pond and assert itself as a distinctive new feature of the park.”
Bushy is the fourth of six new sculptures commissioned as part of Dublin City Council’s Sculpture Dublin initiative.
