Cargo: Anish Kapoor Sculpture.
From: London UK.
To: Bilbao Spain.
Right from the outset, public art and sculptures have been a feature of the work performed by The Specialist Transport Group. In this instance, with the Anish Kapoor Sculpture titled Tall Tree and the Eye, STG were initially responsible for delivery into the West End, this being one of the largest exhibits ever at the Royal Academy of Arts.
Given that London is alive twenty four hours a day, closing off Piccadilly and diverting traffic in the middle of the night was a challenge in itself.
Past projects have involved the Bronze Reclining Nude in Liverpool Street Station (originating from Florence), The Sothebys Summer Exhibition at Chatsworth, various Lorenzo Quinn sculptures into Berkeley Square, Windsor Castle and the Venice Biennale – each one priceless in its own right.
