Two of our project managers have been in Doha at the QM Gallery ALRAWIQ this week de-installing the 8 x 12 metre, 40 tonne sculpture ‘Freedom’ by Peng Yu & Sun Yuan. The piece, which was part of Qatar China 2016 Year of Culture, is comprised of a fire hose, on full blast, flailing wildly within the confines of the steel structure. You can see ‘Freedom’ in situ in the below video.
