Simon Patterson’s Seascape at De La Warr Pavilion

We love Simon Patterson’s Seascape, created especially for the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea. Working with Bexhill Sailing Club, Patterson staged the temporary public spectacle on 20th May. This marked the opening of his solo exhibition, Safari: an exhibition as expedition, where the club staged a ‘sea-battle’ during which coloured smoke grenades were set off in a daytime display that referenced the commissioning of artists in the 17th and 18th centuries to design spectacles, including mock battles and firework displays, for their patrons. The exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion continues until – 3rd September 2017 at The De La Warr Pavilion www.dlwp.com
