For this art sculpture, the French artist had initially conceived the corten steel project over 35 years ago in 1984 — intending for it to be sited along a highway in France — during a time when art was just emancipating itself from the contemporary art museum space and asserting its presence in the public space to be enjoyed by one and all.

Fabricated out of massive sections of corten steel, Bernar Venet’s L’arc Majeur expresses its raw materiality and distorts the viewer’s perception of its environment.
