AJ ENQUIRY No: 206

Twenty thousand Laybrook Parham Red Stock bricks were donated to Danish artist Per Kirkeby for his 30m-long, 4m-high sculpture at the Tate Gallery. Visitors wander through the four separate sections which run along the centre of the gallery.

The project, which contains more bricks than two houses, took a team of eight bricklayers two weeks to complete. This is the second brick sculpture to be shown at the Tate Gallery, the first being Carl Andre's 'Equivalent VIII' which stirred art critics 26 years ago.
