Nigel Hall RA: Kiss
2000 | painted steel | South Colonnade (exterior) | Art Map reference: 63
Nigel Hall’s Kiss comprises two elements, a cone and a wedge, positioned to balance naturally, but – held slightly apart at the base – a tension shimmers between them. Often informed by his intense interest in landscape, Hall’s sculptures explore spatial ambiguity in deceptively simple compositions, which often employ mathematical constructs in their resolution.
Kiss was exhibited as part of Hall’s exhibition at Canary Wharf in autumn 2016, which focused on his use of elliptical and orbital configurations.
