Henry Moore sculpture to be installed at King's Cross Square

A sculpture by Henry Moore is being permanently installed at Stanton Williams’ redeveloped King’s Cross Square later this month

The 3m-high art work, entitled Large Spindle Piece, was completed by Moore in 1974 and will be unveiled in its new home on 8 August.

Stanton Williams’ work on the 7,000m² space formed part of the £550million station redevelopment and opened to the public in September last year.

Alan Stanton, director of Stanton Williams said: ‘As part of our design for the Square we were asked to designate a specific area where artworks could be sited with perhaps the hope that it could become a kind of “Fourth Plinth”, as in Trafalgar Square.’

He added: ‘We have not been involved by Network Rail in either the selection or the final siting of the Moore sculpture.’

The sculpture, which has been exhibited internationally, will be unveiled by Richard Calvocoressi, director of the Henry Moore Foundation.
