LOCATION: Hatfield House – Hatfield AL9 5NQ
WORK: “Renaissance”
MATERIALS: Stainless steel, gold dust, and resin
MOVEMENT: Water cascades down the top surface of the two large ‘split rings’ and collects at the bottom, where the weight causes the split rings to rise. The water is then shed, and the sculpture slowly lowers again. After cycling a few times, a curious mist appears in the centre of the pool. Then, very slowly, a huge, golden sphere rises from beneath the water’s surface. This gleaming globe then sinks again into the darkness below the surface.
NOTES: Commissioned by the current Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury.
