ProjectLabyrinth – Artwork

Back to Projects

Art on the Underground, as part of the 150th anniversary of the tube, commissioned Mark Wallinger, one of the UK’s leading contemporary artists, to create a new large multi-site artwork for London Underground.

Mark Wallinger created 270 individual artworks, an individual Labyrinth for each station. Each of these individual artworks would be manufactured in vitreous enamel. vitreous enamel was chosen for the project as it is synonymous with London Underground, as the majority of signs and cladding are fabricated from it. The finished project is a bold black and red print on a white background. The slightly embossed finish of the vitreous enamel print gives a tactile feel to each artwork, allowing commuters to follow the path around the Labyrinth with their finger.

Links Signs were award the Manufacture and Installation of the Labyrinth project and it was one of the first projects to go through the newly built vitreous enamel plant.
