Quadrilinear

66 Wigmore Street, London

15 Metres high, stands Quadrilinear rising through the external architectural envelope of 66 Wigmore Street forming a vertical cantilever at the point that the sculpture ascends from the atrium space.

The sculpture rises through the atrium on the corner of Marylebone Lane marking the junction at which Marylebone Lane meets Wigmore Street.

Comprising of five curved layers. The artwork is exposed beyond its “frame”, questioning the boundaries of art within architecture. Five layers of stainless-steel plates stand tall within the facade, each sheet is only 5mm thick and held together using 1200 stainless steel threaded rods. With Lee’s fascination of maps and topography, the artwork draws on contextual research and references form the surrounding local historical maps dating back to the 16th Century. ¬†Like cutting a tree in half to expose the grow rings the linear strips of collaged map abstracted into line drawings, capture moments in time of the local context evolving from pastures and fields into the quadrilinear nature that is recognisable today.
