Commissioned and produced by Artangel, this temporary art installation was created by artist, architect and conservationist Jorge Otero-Pailos. The artwork is a 50 metre long translucent latex cast of Westminster Hall’s east wall and contains hundreds of years of surface pollution and dust.
Suspended from the hall’s magnificent 28-metre high hammerbeam roof, the latex sheet contains innumerable particles of dust, soot and dirt gently lifted from the wall during the sensitive cleaning process.
