Gallery Society Art Installation

March 18, 2016

Bute

This term Gallery Society transformed 45 Bute Gardens into an art installation that explored the relationship between nature and technology, specifically within London. Our work was inspired by the Barbara Hepworth and Ai Wei Wei exhibitions we visited earlier this year. In one of the pieces  (pictured above) multiple paint cans pour into a Thames-shaped puddle on the floor to express the idea of culture being poured into the city. The river was a tool to join, yet also divide, the room and its placement on the floor was a stubborn statement to force the viewer to notice the river as they stepped over it. This project was a mixture of recycled materials, plenty of paint and a whole load of brainstorming on the spot.
