Adrián Villar Rojas – A Beached Whale
I have mixed feelings about a lot of public art. When done well I believe it can greatly enhance a space and the lives of those who encounter it (Gormley, Kapoor and Heatherwick are three who have done this well, and the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square has mostly been successful). But too often it comes across as a folly, bland or unfitting for the space.
Argentinian sculptor Adrián Villar Rojas‘ huge sculpture of a whale in a forest in Argentina falls firmly into the former. An amazing piece of work, beautifully executed. I’m envious of those who might stumble upon it without previously knowing of its existence.
