Myriad was commissioned by Aldeburgh Music and Suffolk Coastal District Council to join the outdoor sculpture collection at Snape Maltings alongside existing works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Sarah Lucas and Alison Wilding. Designed by CORD in response to the brief for a sculpture that “offers a vantage point across the marshes at Snape and a new view over this flat and beautiful landscape”.
Standing tall on the Henry Moore Lawn holding an array of mirrors high above visitors’ heads, ‘Myriad’ reflects selected views over the surrounding landscape down to earth. A wide range of views is collected, from distant vistas across the marshes to new perspectives of the more immediate surroundings. These various viewpoints are reflected to form a multi-perspective collage that constantly shifts in relation to the visitors’ movement around and within the installation.
Myriad was created as a collaboration between architect Germano Di Chello and artist David Rickard.
