Alex Chinneck, who last year created the ‘Floating Covent Garden’ has created a 15ft high, 15 metre long gravity defying sculpture in the shadow of the London Eye – where a parking space has peeled back from the ground leaving a car parked upside down with no visible support !
The sculpture ‘Alex Chinneck for Vauxhall Motors: Pick yourself up and pull yourself’ is parked in the Hungerford Car Park, Southbank Centre for a week until tomorrow Wednesday 25th February. It is free to visit and the brave can even stand below it.
This year’s Kensington + Chelsea Art Week will bring the Royal Borough to life with incredible public art during October. Highlights include the façade of the Coronet Theatre wrapped in embroidered poetry, empty retail spaces transformed with installations and colourful murals from local artists acknowledging Black Lives Matter, the COVID19 pandemic and paying tribute to the NHS. This vibrant festival is free and open to all.
‘You see me like a UFO’ is curator Marcelle Joseph’s latest exhibition featuring more than 70 artists from her collection and that of the GIRLPOWER Collection – a snapshot of many of the young artists of today’s London.
