This newly completed sculpture pairing by British sculpture Sean Henry is to become Britain’s first permanent offshore sculpture. It will be part of a major coastal defence project and be sited off Newbiggin Bay, Northumberland where it is hoped it might help to revitalise what was once one a popular seaside village by placing it on the global arts map. ‘Couple’ features two five metre bronze figures of a man and a woman who will look out to sea and form part of a 200 metre breakwater that will be 350 metres out into the bay.
‘Couple’ will be set in place during this month of July.
