Towards the Sound of Wilderness, 2011
Cristina Iglesias’s architectural intervention on the ramparts of Martello 4, the Leas, is an illusion of an entrance into another world. Iglesias’s sculpture allows visitors a chance to view this historic monument for the first time in many years. Visitors need to negotiate a path cut through shrubs and trees to a mirrored walk-in structure clad with resin foliage. A window at the end of this passageway opens up a view of the overgrown tower and moat with its extraordinary wildlife.
