Remember the guy who painstakingly brought us 312 identically smashed windows, 1248 pieces of glass in an abandoned warehouse? Well, he’s back, this time with a curiously fantastical new sculpture inspired by the thatched roofs of yore.
This 17ft tall, sculpture that rings of witch-hunts, town criers and Constable’s The Hay Wain is a whopping 1.5 tonnes, and is designed to move around as the wind blows. I don’t know if it’s because it’s exhibited in a lovely garden of a stately home (we all love a bit of National Trust) or whether it’s because it reminds me of something from a fairy tale, but there is something truly, magnificently beautiful about this piece. Well done Alex!
