Title of work
Sadie Coles HQ, Heddon Street
“Taking the iconic forms of antiquity – pillar, arch, idealized human form – and focussing on the overwhelming spectacle that defines the ‘Fascist style’, Horowitz questions its proximity to more generic trends in popular culture. Horowitz’s democratic use of readily available materials is in keeping with the everyman political spirit that lies behind the work”.

This large arch structure envisaged by the artist was engineered by us using a system of voided-out ply plates which then formed a substructure laminated with panels imported from the United States to create an entirely plastic-faced structure. The arch was made in two sections, and we joined it on site in the gallery.
