17.04.2015 - 17.04.2015

Acquired by the Rothschild Foundation for the Waddesdon Manor contemporary art collection, the work Latife is a pair of sculptures by Joana Vasconcelos set to be installed on the North Front.

Made of glass wine bottles (from Château Lafite Rothschild) and a steel armature lit from within with fibre-optic strands, the work takes the form of a giant pair of candlesticks and symbolise the Rothschild family's connection to the world of wine, as well as beeing a reminder of Waddesdon’s tradition of hospitality and the pleasures of the table.
