The Story of Terrace Wires

Terrace Wires is one of the country’s most ambitious public art programmes. A new work is commissioned every year to hang for six months from St Pancras International's iconic train shed roof - a magnificent space which is seen by a million UK and international travellers every week.

2018 is the 6th year of the programme, and the 4th year working with the Royal Academy of Arts. Previous artwork included The Interpretation of Movement by Conrad Shawcross, Cloud: Meteors by Lucy+Jorge Orta, Chromolocomotion by David Batchelor, One More Time by Cornelia Parker RA and Thought of Train of Thought by Ron Arad RA.

The Terrace Wires artwork is chosen by a panel. They seek the submission that is most inspired by the station, its beauty and grandeur, and the history and architecture of the station. 

Terrace Wires is not the only art project in the station. Visit here for other works.
