Installed on a rocky outcrop in Pilane, Sweden (opening 18 May 2019), Monolith (Optic) appears to change endlessly according to shifting light conditions.
Read an interview with Conrad Shawcross about the work.
Taking the form of a simple immersive maze, Optic Labyrinth engages with the sun and its shifting position throughout the day and the seasons, focusing specifically on how people navigate and orientate themselves both emotionally and physically in relation to its rise and fall.
Watch a video of the work installed as part of Frieze Sculpture 2018 here.
