About the Artwork
|Please note this artwork is no longer on display.
Leo Fitzmaurice’s Arcadia (2007) is one element of a multi-part sculpture based on the conventions of public signage. The works are part of the artist’s ongoing interest in what the he terms ‘information-objects’. His work looks at how these objects are designed to relate to us physically within the environment. With Arcadia the artist has substituted the factual information, usually found on these signs, for something more poetic, allowing viewers to enjoy this material, along with the space around it in a new and more open-ended way.
Arcadia was originally commissioned by YSP where an earlier version of Arcadia still resides.
