"Once I visited the statue, looked at it up close, the story really came to life. It’s an inspiring project, making a statue someone rather than something.”
Giles Penny’s large bronze sculpture of Two Men on a Bench came to Canary Wharf as part of the exhibition Shape of the Century. The two figures have been sitting back to back since 1994 and although they may have seen all the goings on around Canary Wharf, have they ever seen one another?
