Network Rail to unveil sculpture at King’s Cross
Thursday, 07 August 2014
mclcreate will deliver the official unveiling of a public sculpture at King’s Cross Square this Friday, for track operator Network Rail.
Large Spindle Piece, by acclaimed British sculptor Henry Moore, is the first piece of public art to be installed at King’s Cross Square, which opened in September last year as part of the major £550m redevelopment of King’s Cross station.
The three-metre high bronze sculpture, created in 1974, has been exhibited around the world as one of Moore’s most important monumental works.
The event is produced by UK event company mclcreate via their London department. The company previously worked with Network Rail on the Victorian Carnival celebrations marking the opening of the new King’s Cross Station.
Rebecca Harmer, Network Rail’s Senior Events Manager, said:
“This new statue will add a striking and attractive focal point to the new station, and is especially appropriate as King’s Cross is a gateway to the Henry Moore Foundation in Hertfordshire and the Henry Moore Institute in Yorkshire. We were pleased to work with the mclcreate team to deliver this exciting project.”
The sculpture will be unveiled by Richard Calvocoressi, Director of the Henry Moore Foundation.
