The Observatory


Carlos Garaicoa is a Cuban artist of international acclaim whose artistic practice considers architecture as biographer of place. In 2003 Garaicoa was invited to create a work of art for The Castleford Project — a long term regeneration initiative instigated by Channel 4 and WMDC. This exhibition presents three models by Garaicoa of a conceptual building for the town. The models are sculptures in their own right, but suggest a real possibility for a cultural centre in the town incorporating Roman ruins, a meeting space whose floor is a direct representation of the town as seen at night, and an observatory.
