Temenos Reflection, Middlesbrough

By Elaine Vizor ARPS

Anish Kapoor's 'Temenos', which means 'sacred place', reflects and stands amidst the remains of an industrial heritage and a regenerated dock. The sprawling butterfly nets, held taught by steel wire on poles at either side, represent the former harshness and rigor of industry with it's inherent fragility. It is a sacred place to reflect on the enormity of the sculpture and it's own reflection seems to echo this, whilst also doubling the visual impact the artwork has on the landscape.
