Fernando Pessoa, by Richard Serra, 2007

He says the connection is tangential: he was reading the book while making the piece, and cautions that ‘one should not read too much into my titles’. (In the past he has dedicated work to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder and the art critic David Sylvester.)

The Pessoa piece is powerful; it brings to mind foundries and shipyards as well as the Berlin Wall and the Israeli-built security fence that snakes though Palestine. You can see why it might cause consternation to those who prefer art to be in some way uplifting.

The Matter of Time, by Richard Serra.
This installation was made purposely for the Guggenheim from Bilbao and it occupies is the biggest in the museum - a vast room, some 430 ft long by 80 ft wide. Its made out of  steel sheets, about two inches thick and up to 50ft long and 14 ft high. These are curved in a rolling-mill along both the horizontal and vertical axes, as though they were mere sheets of tin.
