Michele Mathison Public Sculpture for V&A Waterfront

WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that Michele Mathison’s commission – ‘Angular Mass’ will be unveiled at the Silo District this month. The unveiling will take place at 6pm on the 15th  of February at the V & A Waterfront

The sculpture comprises of five large flywheels that formed an integral part of the original Grain Silo machinery when it was first constructed in 1921. When our historic building was repurposed, the flywheels were given to artist Michele Mathison. He used the wheels to create a static sculpture that nevertheless captures the dynamic motion of their rotational drive, and the sheer weight and size of the wheels.

The sculpture forms part of the V&A Waterfront’s Art in Public Places programme. This ongoing initiative brings creative outdoor elements to the property, allowing visitors to interact with and enjoy sizeable works of art on a free, open-air platform that is open 24-hours a day.
