“Mute Meadow” to be Foyle Public Art

The current Northern Ireland Arts Minister, the DUP’s Gregory Campbell, has revealed the £800,000 “inspirational piece of public art that will reflect the spirit, creativity, history and diversity of this city and its people” that will be the Foyle Public Arts Project announced in January last year. The project’s website never did take off but the BBC report has some details of the winning design by Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier. And there should be an animation somewhere.. From today’s announcement

Speaking at the announcement Minister Campbell said: “The winning design, ‘Mute Meadow’, by Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier is truly inspirational. It is a City’s architecture and public art that makes it unique and helps it to stand out from other international cities. This piece of art work will certainly do that and it will be visible from the old walled city across the river and in turn, the site of the work itself offers prime views over the river to the walled city opposite.”
