Barbara Hepworth - Figure in Landscape
Client: Tate St Ives
ICR were delighted to be asked to provide conservation engineering and logistical solutions in support of the collections care programme managed by Tate St Ives for the sculpture garden
Using a bespoke scaffold tower and lifting equipment the form was raised under controlled conditions to assess how to fit and secure a sensitive long-term mechanical stabilisation solution and carry out a comprehensive condition survey of the internal base and plinth
The work was time sensitive and once started had to be carried out in challenging wintery conditions.
