situate - International Arts Competition

The winning entry, by artist James Angus is a lively and lyrical biomorphic form, which will attract the public's attention because it is tactile and playful.

Depending on viewpoint and time of day, the shapes and shadows the form creates will transform.

Unashamedly sculptural and pointedly non-descriptive, the artwork will be a marker for the city and a colourful focal point for Forrest Place.
