Nina Tanis

'Untitled (concrete birds)'
The Rose Garden, Trinity College

Nina’s hand-sculpted concrete birds sit in their hundreds in Trinity College’s Rose Garden – a beautiful spot for contemplation and quiet amid the rush of the City Centre. Despite the simplicity of the birds themselves, there are many contradictions in Nina’s piece – the rough, man-made creatures have a strange tension within the paradisal gardens but the accumulation of the birds in to a unified pattern gives an overall sense of beauty and serenity.
