This May, forty years since pioneering environmental artist Agnes Denes (b.1931) first sowed the seeds of her prophetic public artwork Wheatfield - A Confrontation, CIRCA presents ‘Another Confrontation’. With this new commission, Denes transforms Piccadilly Lights and major screens around the world into platforms for change. Featuring three new video works alongside a specially created interactive AR wheat field on Instagram, Denes alerts audiences once again to the planet’s continuing humanitarian and environmental challenges. Alongside this major new commission Denes had produced The Butterfly Effect, a hand-signed limited edition print.




Each Limited Edition comes with a stamped and dated certificate of authenticity.

To guarantee each print arrives in perfect condition, they are carefully wrapped in tissue paper, hand packaged in a heavy duty cardboard tube and delivered with a tracking number.

Although we endeavour to deliver the print as soon as possible, please note that due to the process involved, they may take between 1-2 months to arrive in the post. The shipping fee is calculated at checkout.
