Milestones by Richard Serra
Áfangar, Richard Serra,1991

For the Reykjavík Arts Festival of 1990, a work of art by US sculp­tor Richard Serra was crea­ted onWest island. The work comprises nine pairs of pill­ars of col­umnar basalt, which “frame” certain land­marks and dest­inati­ons. Serra, one of the most influ­ential sculp­tors of the post-war era, made a gift of Áfangar to the Icelandic people

Each pair of pill­ars is so placed that one stands nine metres above sea level, and the other ten metres. The pillar which stands lower is four metres long, and the other three metres, so the tops of the pill­ars are level. The dist­ance between each pair of pill­ars is defined by the vary­ing gra­dient of the ground where they stand.
