The limited edition photograph was produced on the occasion of the public art project Parasol Public: Walk The Line, on Exchange Square, London, 6-10 June 2011.
Walk The Line is a dynamic site-specific sculptural artwork by American artist Kate Gilmore, including an installation, a video and performers.
During the live performance, teams of eight women in two shifts walked continuously on top of the red structure for nine hours a day; from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Members of the public were able to walk both around the structure in order to experience the work visually and through the passageway beneath the platform to get a sensory experience of the women walking above. By creating such a visually striking and powerful work, Gilmore highlights and gives prominence to the daily life of professional women in the City of London.
Kate Gilmore lives and works in New York City.
