Broken Chair, Place des Nations

Memorial for Landmine Victims

The Broken Chair jolts out of the dreary Place des Nations in Geneva. Surrounded by steady traffic and standing opposite the European UN Headquarters, I found its size, odd rust-green colour and geometrical imbalance surprisingly fascinating.

Broken Chair was commissioned by Handicap International to help persuade governments to ban landmines.
