Fischli/Weiss: Rock on Top of Another RockRock on Top of Another Rock is the first and only public sculpture by Swiss artists Fischli and Weiss to be commissioned in the UK. Located in Kensington Gardens, the unique sculpture is a representation of the earliest and most basic types of monument from around the world. Formed of two glacial igneous granite boulders, it shows one rock balanced precariously on top of the other and is visible from a number of viewpoints across the park. The aim was to create a piece that is initially startling but also fits both locally and historically with its surroundings.

 

About Kensington Gardens

Technically two different parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are in practical and historical terms one huge, merging expanse. Almost every kind of outdoor pursuit takes place within its 625 acres all year round. Horse-riding, rollerblading, swimming, boating, tennis, cycling, bowling and putting are just some of the formal activities catered for in this central, sporty park, while informal games of cricket, football, rugby and rounders regularly sprout up in the Sports Field on the south side of the park.
