St Paul’s Cathedral
The Dean of the Chapter at St Paul's Cathedral engaged Jes Fernie to manage a commission to create a baptismal font for the west end of the cathedral. Jes worked with Sandy Nairne, Susan Ferleger Brades and Richard Cork to devise a shortlist of artists and architects. Rachel Whiteread, Anish Kapoor and Tadao Ando were amongst those who were invited to develop proposals. Kapoor was selected to carry out the commission. The project has been put on hold pending further consideration by the Dean.
