Questions have been asked about a piece of public sculpture commemorating the victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York that was due to be installed permanently in London’s Olympic Park in Stratford. Last year, we reported that After 9/11by the US-based artist Miya Ando, which incorporates a twisted steel column from the World Trade Center, was destined for the East End of the capital but the project seemed to have stalled. A spokesman for Ando’s dealer, Sundaram Tagore gallery in New York, tells us, however, that “the actual installation and the ceremony will be taking place spring of 2015”.
