The stone figure for Malta, titled the radiant, shows the human figure in the most elemental and archaic form, using the most ancient material, stone. The bluestone is rough-cut into blocks and stacked one over another to form the human figure. The methods by which the stone has been worked are apparent to the viewer and not obscured by subsequent handling. Drill-holes and split structures are visible traces of the work in the quarry where the blocks were taken from the ground. The work allows the stones to be what they are: heavy, coarse, and marked by wind and weather.

 

Ugo Rondinone’s the radiant will be installed in the Sa Maison Gardens,  Floriana, as part of the MICAS concept launch and it will be open for public viewing from the 13th of October, 2018, till the 31st of March, 2019.
