  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘Western Facade’ references the shrapnel damaged Aston Webb facade on the Exhibition Road elevation of The Victoria and Albert Museum caused by bombs dropped during the 1940 blitz. Holes
    run both vertically and horizontally through the bench appearing randomised though they never intersect, they allow light to pass through the material giving a translucency to the otherwise solid mass.
