Depth 4.5 meters, 25 life size sculptures, 5 meters in diameter, Grenada, West Indies
This is an older work that I just discovered, so if you have seen it my apologies. This sculpture feels like a monument of some sort and on reading about this work of art that seems to be what Taylor intended. The figures are linking hands “evoking ideas of unity and continuum” and stand against currents to become a new reef.
The cement finish and chemical composition of Vicissitudes actively promotes the colonisation of coral and marine life.
