The Minotaur – Kielder Water and Forest Park
Kielder Castle, Northumberland
The commission of the maze in the grounds of Kielder Castle was won in open international competition from 75 entries. Designed in collaboration with Shona Kitchen, the structure is built of steel gabions filled with basalt rocks and, in the central chamber, waste glass cullet. The Minotaur was included in the exhibition Per Laberints at Barcelona’s Centre de Cultura Contemporania in 2010. The project was curated by Peter Sharpe.
