Kingsgate House

Victoria Street, London

The Silver Forest is a collaboration between Rut Blees Luxemburg, Lynch Architects & Graphic Relief. The work was commissioned by Lynch Architects and Land Securities to create a large-scale artwork for the western façade of Westminster City Hall.

The large-scale sculptural piece is the first permanent public artwork by photographic artist Rut Blees Luxemburg.

The Silver Forest takes the form of a monumental concrete frieze that depicts nocturnal urban silver birch forests. The 7 x 30m artwork comprise 6 bays, each of 16 concrete panels which depicts a different photographic image.

 

The image of the forest is a powerful allegory for spiritual contemplation, reflection & organic renewal. In this work is seen from different perspectives and the textured surface responds subtly to the illumination of day and night, changing from grey to silver.
