Of this work Stephen Ellis suggested: "The `challengers' are the most common type [of work in the collection curated for Building 206], and perhaps the healthiest. There are degrees of challenge, of which the quietest must be Suzy Pennington's. Pennington is a fibre-artist: her 'Beyond Horizontal' hanging is a subtle challenge to the efficiency of its surroundings."
This work is one of a number of works commissioned by Pat Hanly for each of the level foyers when Building 206 (originally Arts 1 Building) was built in 1984.
