Terrace Wires is a prominent programme for public art, bringing a series of major installations to St Pancras International’s iconic Barlow Shed roof, where they are suspended in front of the station’s famous clock. It offers 48 million travellers each year the chance to experience the latest contemporary art as they pass through the station.
Next time you are in St Pancras International make sure to look up and enjoy our 2017 Terrace Wires art project in all its glory.
In partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, we are proud to showcase The Interpretation of Movement (a 9:8 in blue), 2017 by UK artist Conrad Shawcross RA.
This is his largest mechanical work to date, stretching out to 16m in diameter underneath the vast St Pancras International roof. Mesmerising and methodical, it consists of three articulated arms with sails that expand and contract as they orbit and eclipse each other in mid-air.
St Pancras International is proud to be the home of some specially commissioned pieces of Art.
