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.
