The intention of the artists has been to create a celebratory but nevertheless mysterious work that draws and welcomes people to the revitalised theatre.
The work is placed within an elevated space above the foyer entrance defined in architectural terms as a ‘clerestory void’, and is visible both from outside the building and from within the foyer interior. This space is akin to a large display case and the artists wanted to place a form within the space that would have the ambiguous presence of an object hovering in space.
The Regent Theatre has been restored to its former glory and great attention has been paid to the quality and authenticity of the detailing. This artwork places something new and completely contemporary in this setting without disturbing the appearance of the building.
