Step out from Level 2 onto the terrace and follow Jeppe
Hein's Long Modified Bench Auckland as it weaves up, down
and around. Trace its roller-coaster course as it dips down inside
the Gallery's building only to pop back up again into the daylight.
Return at dusk to see the bench light up. Stand back, sit down,
stretch out or loop the loop.
Hein's sculpture is one of three temporary commissioned
works which celebrate the opening of the developed Gallery.
