Christine Borland was commissioned to create a new outdoor permanent work to coincide with the opening of the new Whitworth gallery extension. We fabricated the work from Christine’s drawings, using galvanised and powder coated steel components, joined together on site. We previously fabricated another version of this work for the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, on a smaller scale. The work references the steel structure supporting the Hippocratic Tree in Kos.
