Mandhira De Saram - Barbican Centre Sculpture Court (Level 3)

Barbican Sculpture Court

The curved area of Frobisher Cresent

Violin soloist, chamber musician, improviser, and collaborator who specialises in contemporary and experimental music.

She is a founding member and the leader of the Ligeti Quartet, a young string quartet which has established a reputation as a leading dynamic and imaginative force in contemporary and modern music.

Beneath the curve of Frobisher Crescent is a layer-cake of activity. The top floors consist of residential apartments and Barbican Centre offices. The luckiest teams get a desktop view of the leafy Sculpture Court and its Brutalist, symmetrical staircases.

Even the embedded air vents are far from unremarkable. Below this lies the sweeping form of our Curve gallery, a unique space that has housed some of our most iconic exhibitions.
