Product story

The sculptures of Conrad Shawcross RA explore subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. For the 2015 Summer Exhibition’s Annenberg Courtyard installation, Shawcross has created a large-scale, immersive work consisting of five steel, cloud-like forms. These are made from thousands of tetrahedrons, standing at over six metres high and weighing five tonnes each. Shawcross explains: ‘The Greeks considered the tetrahedron to represent the very essence of matter. In this huge work I have taken this form as my “brick”, growing these chaotic, diverging forms that will float above the heads of visitors.’
