Remco de Fouw recently completed a new project :VOICE
It was commissioned by the OPW for the Irish Prison Services Headquaters, Longford
A stunning and ambitious work, the installation is capture here:
Location: Irish Prison Services Headquaters, Longford
Materials: Granite, Brass, Stainless steel
Dimensions: 63,000 cm
The context provided the inspiration for this commission.
A huge granite boulder sits to the side of the 100 meter glass atrium.
This has a series of playful ring marks cleanly cut into its surface and from it leaps the main feature.
It is a 63 meter long curved conical ‘horn’ form appearing to penetrate the glass curtain wall and is then suspended in a huge ark overhead in atrium.
It is a semi transparent brass and stainless mesh helix, ending in a 2000mm open mouth seen here.
