This is Caro’s most recent work, commissioned especially for this exhibition. It continues his exploration of the dialogue between sculpture and architecture; here he probes the boundary between the two disciplines. Its internal spaces invite physical occupation and, indeed, it suggests a building: its step formation resembles a ziggurat. At the same time, the structure is clearly non-functional: a sculpture that draws close to architecture but remains separate, rooted in imagination and the free expression of feeling.
