Renaissance

Recently commissioned ‘Renaissance’ now takes pride of place on the North Front of Hatfield House.

This magnificent water sculpture was designed by one of Britain’s most prolific sculptors, Angela Conner.

Whilst vast in scale and impressive in material, Conner’s work is characterised by the contrasting simplicity of the mechanic she engineers specifically to realise the mobile aspects of each design.

Conner’s sculptures feature in public and private collections worldwide and she has been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of the Arts in London and awarded an American Institute of Architects’ Honour Award for sculpture and co-design of Heinz Plaza, Pittsburgh USA. At 35 metres, her Irish Wave in Dublin is the tallest mobile sculpture in Europe.

Renaissance is the second Conner mobile water sculpture commissioned by the Marquess of Salisbury. In 2002, La Source was installed at Cranborne Manor, the family home in Dorset.
