IT IS LOCATED IN BUSHY PARK
The last time I photographed this I could not read the description as it had been painted over with graffiti … this time I could see that it was “Bushy” by Corban Walker. As I could not find any information online I decided that it could have been a 5G communications mast or a bee friendly structure.
In August 2022 I discovered 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.
