Jennie Moncur at the ICA

As you head to the upstairs area at the ICA you are greeted with an impressive laser cut linoleum floor. The curatorial comment explains it’s by British tapestry artist, Jennie Moncur.

Inspired by the tapestries of the Loire castles in France, Moncur uses bold compositions and geometric shapes to create an eye catching design to lead visitors to the first floor galleries.

The flooring was originally installed in 1987 to celebrate the ICA’s fortieth anniversary. In 2008 Moncur was invited back to reinstate her original design to mark their sixtieth anniversary as the original work has been worn away by human traffic.

A delightful slideshow of her ICA flooring and plans can be viewed on Moncur’s website here.
