Kiosk – Wolfgang Weileder

Kiosk, by Wolfgang Weileder, is a large-scale architectural sculpture. It has been designed using the visual language of Islamic architecture and is constructed out of wood from reclaimed Christian church pews. It stands at a height of approximately 5.4m, with a width and depth of 4.4m.

Kiosk combines the materials of one religion with the iconography of another, provoking a discussion about the rules of architecture and the nature of sacred buildings. Through this new work, Weileder has created a meditative space and a vehicle to explore wider issues of social inclusion, diversity and common ground in our society.

Come along to see Kiosk in the Refectory Café, from 23 April – 17 July 2022. Access is free for those with an Ushaw Annual Pass and included with Daily Admission.
