DESCRIPTION

Step out from Level 2 onto the terrace and follow Jeppe Hein's Long Modified Bench Auckland as it weaves up, down and around. Trace its roller-coaster course as it dips down inside the Gallery's building only to pop back up again into the daylight. Return at dusk to see the bench light up. Stand back, sit down, stretch out or loop the loop.

Hein's sculpture is one of three temporary commissioned works which celebrate the opening of the developed Gallery.
