ON THE TERRACE
JULIEN TIBERI: THE PANORAMIC DAILIES #2
Continues through to Saturday 12 August 2017

Don’t miss Julien Tiberi’s dyed concrete sculpture, The Panoramic Dailies #2 on view on the terrace until Saturday 12 August. As if to mimic the concrete composition of huddled figures, the viewer moves around the congregation, curiously trying to find out what is hidden in the centre of the crowd.
