Hunting Blind, 2011
Hunting Blind is comprised of three sculptural elements: a tower, perches and five reflective shields. Using the terrace as a stage and the art works as props, the sculpture engages visitors in the construction of its narrative by creating a space of interaction. The title refers to the shelter used by hunters to conceal themselves, but can also be interpreted more actively, as ‘hunting while being blind’, and addresses futility and isolation, the quest for success and the possibility of failure.
