Dulwich Park Gets Replacement For Stolen Hepworth Sculpture

Conrad Shawcross Dulwich Installation

The northern edge of Dulwich Park has three new pieces of public sculpture; sinuous shapes from the studio of Conrad Shawcross representing The Octave, The Fifth and The Fourth. The anfractuous artworks replace a sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, which was taken by suspected scrap metal thieves a few years ago.

Three Perpetual Chords, as the pieces are collectively known, was commissioned by Southwark Council in partnership with the Contemporary Art Society. The cast-iron structures will be officially unveiled on 18 April. The event will include a performance from the London Contemporary Orchestra inspired by the sculptures, with light refreshments and a chance to meet the people behind the work. Just turn up.
