Chris Wilkinson RA has designed a graceful and engaging structure for the Royal Academy’s Annenberg Courtyard. From Landscape to Portrait twists a series of eleven wooden frames through ninety degrees which incorporates innovative seating for visitors.
Chris Wilkinson’s installation is the latest work in the RA’s Summer programme of Sculpture in the Courtyard. It follows on from Jeff Koons’ Coloring Book (2011), Barry Flanagan’s Hare and Bell 1988, Nijinski Hare 1996 and Large Left-Handed Drummer 2006 (2010), Bryan Kneale’s Triton III (2009), Sir Anthony Caro’s Promenade (2008), Jake and Dinos Chapman’s The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth, but not the Mineral Rights (2007), Anselm Kiefer’s Jericho (2007), Rodin's Gates of Hell (2006) and Damien Hirst's Virgin Mother (2006).
