RUN Sculpture


RUN is a glass and stainless steel artwork by artist Monica Bonvicini made up of three huge letters, each measuring nine metres high. Inspired by the many references to running in popular songs, its meaning is deliberately ambiguous, both serious and satirical.

The artwork represents a bold architectural statement on one of the highest points of the Park. In daylight, RUN is a vast mirror for you and your surroundings. By night, the letters glow with lines of internal LED lighting that seem to extend endlessly into the mirrored interior.

The construction of RUN was complex. Steel frames for each letter were shipped from the Czech Republic. Once on the Park, curved internal mirrors, rows of LED lighting and a reflective cladding were installed. This 10-week process called for very precise production and installation methods, many of which had never been attempted before.
