I think I am headed in the right direction….

Not far to go….

I found it!

Anne ~ Slate resin figure on Mirror polished stainless steel
Sculptor ~ Lucy Glendinning

A 7m high mirror polished stainless steel column with internal lighting a laser cut pattern with coloured perspex insets and a life size figure cast in slate resin. The figure faces Saint Anne’s Cathedral.

On Lucy Glendinning‘s website, not alone can you learn about her but, see her commissions, exhibitions and read her poetry.

Anne is a commissioned sculpture for Saint Anne’s Square, the new city centre piazza behind Saint Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast. The sculpture was installed in November 2009.

A multi £million leisure, commercial and residential development on redeveloped land in the Cathedral Quarter, it was partially open when I visited. This elegant scheme will comprise of ground floor bars and restaurants with turnkey offices at ground and first floor level.

Rising over four floors from the second level will be residential apartments. The focal point of the development will be a new 14,000 sq ft piazza creating a new public space with potential for performing arts and events. An hotel is already open on one corner of the scheme.

The Metropolitan Arts Centre (MAC) is set to open in early 2102.  The venue, will be six storeys high with two theatres, visual arts space and dance studios.

    Sounds like an awesome space as long as they don’t get too carried away and spoil the character of the area. Must put Belfast on my bucket list…it’s getting longer and longer….

    Helen – The space makes a welcome change to all the modern characterless glass fronted buildings that are the norm in every city across the world.

    Nancy – Anne is a little of the well worn track, and may not have a local name yet.

    Tee O – It does have a continental feel about it without the sunshine and heat!

    WWW – it is behind St Anne’s cathedral and beside University of Ulster, Belfast campus.

    Tilly – I wonder how much of this art I have walked by without seeing in the past? My camera has helped to open my eyes.
