Moon Gate

Grenville Davey (born 1961) is a Cornish sculptor and winner of the 1992 Turner Prize. In 2008 he was commissioned by Essex County Council to create a series of sculptures as a permanent legacy of the Essex Jiangsu Festival, which celebrated the county’s 20 year relationship with Jiangsu Province in China. Moon Gate (月亮门) is based upon entrances to the many gardens in Jiangsu. They mark the transition from the outside to a fantastic inner world. The steel banners carry family philosophies which are usually presented in the reception areas of the home.
