Donald Urquhart’s drawing, RECURRING LINE, in full visibility phase at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
A line, measuring 1 x 100 metres, was delineated and planted with Common Snowdrops ( Galanthus nivalis ). The line runs due north and south. Each year, as winter yields to spring, the work announces its presence with the recurring growth and flowering of the snowdrops. At this time, the work will appear as a white line against the verdant expanse of the meadow, before slowly disappearing.
Commissioned for the permanent collection in 2007.
