EAST-WEST / WEST-EAST BY RICHARD SERRA

This breathtaking sculpture in the Brouq nature reserve spans over a kilometre and comprises four steel plates, each over fourteen metres in height. To guarantee perfect alignment, Serra examined the topography of the land and beautifully enhanced the vast, desolate space in the heart of the desert. The result is spectacular and although modern, timeless.

Nestled between limestone rock formations outside Zekreet, just north of Doha, lies Richard Serra’s East-West/West-East installation.  Comprising of four steel plates, each of which is over 14m in height, the installation spans over 1km.  It stands in stark contrast to the soft brown hues of the desert surrounding it, and offers a comment on isolation and the passage of time.
