Pont de Singe (Monkey Bridge) by Olivier Grossetête
Located in the Japanese garden at Tatton Park, England, this dream like sculpture is suspended in the air by three helium filled balloons. Although the bridge could support the weight of several people, in theory, insurance issues hindered the idea especially in an increasingly litigious society, so the bridge was left in the middle of the lake to deter daredevils.
“Those are all pragmatic reasons for the inaccessibility, but I also think that this inaccessibility helps Pont de Singe avoid becoming a gadget or gag at the amusement park, instead becoming poetry. I think our imaginations takes us further than any balloon.”
