Eden by Claire Luxton

Westfield Forum des Halles, Porte Berger, Paris, France

<p>We are very proud to have launched the public art project “Eden” – one of the first living and evolving artworks dealing with nature by artist Claire Luxton next to the Centre Pompidou. Phase one, revealed today, is the beginning of the work. This beginning will be small by design, as in nature nothing blooms overnight.</p> <p>Phase two will be an evolution of the existing work that will complete what has already been done and will arrive within a month. The idea is not only to represent nature but also to imitate it and respect its rhythm. Like a luxuriant flora and a botanical lagoon that takes shape, this work takes time and under the summer sun, under the Canopée des Halles, this work will grow. We will have to keep an eye on it to observe its evolution.</p> <p>In this following phase, we will recover the beginning which starts under the staircase by joining the first part of the work, the empty spaces will be completed and the work will be shown on the walls on each side like a luxuriance, a fauna and a flora slowly taking over the Canopée.</p>

Portraits of Intimate Anonymity

UNIT P04, 210 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1A 9HL

<p>Walter & Zoniel have deeply explored the subject of portraiture. From previously creating works out of 24ct gold on giant format cameras and developing processes using the sweat of their subjects’ faces to create photographs, to shooting portraits of islands and of concepts.</p> <p>This ongoing series sees them delve into a new conceptual facet of portraiture. These stylised W&Z’s photographic works offer a unique intimacy and anonymity to a portrait. Each portrait is thickly overpainted, creating a sculptural incarnation of its subjects, whilst allowing both the subject and the viewer space to inhabit the work with ease.<br /> We are given space to examine, both the subject’s environment and our own natural ‘filling in of the gaps’, our preconceptions and presumptions.</p>

Of Myth and Legend

The Knightsbridge Estate, Brompton Road, London, UK

<p>The Knightsbridge Estate has unveiled a large-scale photographic installation entitled ‘Of Myth and Legend’ on Brompton Road. The Estate commissioned the series of portraits from British Nigerian photographic artist Àsìkò to mark the completion of seven magnificent brand-new flagship stores built behind restored façades. Framed by vast windows, the nine super-sized portraits inspired by multi-cultural fashion culture in London, sit at pavement level, with further images occupying the upper windows.</p> <p>In a collaboration with MTArt to bring Àsìkò’s work to The Knightsbridge Estate, ‘Of Myth and Legend’ draws its inspiration from the stories of deities from the multicultural communities of London. Through the work, Àsìkò explores shared heritages of African and other cultures to create new narrative blends of mythological deities. The series is composed of fashion photographic imagery and collage symbolism as an interpretation of diasporic ideology using deity iconography. The work explores the connections or shared stories, highlighting we have more in common than we think, and our connections loom deeper through the ages.</p> <p>“When I was young I was inspired by the stories of the heroes and mythology of my Yoruba culture.<br /> These cultural icons form the inspiration for ‘Of Myth and Legend’, which explores the legends of the<br /> Orisha through new interpretations of the diaspora narrative. From German to Indian, African and Asian,<br /> the palette of London is wide and vast, a melting point of ethnicities and backgrounds. I am thrilled to<br /> have been given the opportunity by The Knightsbridge Estate to show this new body of work in such a<br /> prestigious and prominent address.”<br /> Àsìkò</p> <p>“The Knightsbridge Estate is excited to be exhibiting this brand-new body of art by Àsìkò. We hope that these works of art will bring pleasure to our thriving community, and attract interest from residents and visitors to The Estate.”<br /> Sarah Waller, Chelsfield’s Senior Asset Manager, The Knightsbridge Estate</p>

Hipster in Stone

Heddon Street, London, UK

<p>We’ve just launched our next public art installation, on Regents Street with the Crown Estate‘Hipsters in Stone’ is the eye-catching work of Léo Caillard, located next to the entrance of Heddon Street and we’re so thrilled to bring more works of art to the streets of London.</p>

Hundreds and Thousands

Greenwich Peninsula, London, UK

<p class="">Greenwich Peninsula has commissioned Liz West to create <em>Hundreds and Thousands </em>for The Tide. The artwork wraps 700 metres of the walkway’s glass balustrades, creating a ribbon of undulating colour. The installation contemplates the subtle nuances of light in this unique riverside location as we transition from Spring to Summer. This work is part of an ongoing exploration of colour and scale, using The Tide as an evolving platform.</p> <p class="">For West<em>, Hundreds and Thousands</em> pays homage to The Tide’s geography and proximity to the Greenwich meridian line by behaving as a sundial, therefore, allowing people to see the changing light depending on the time of day and season. The multiple reflective glass surfaces adorned with jewel-like multicolours will reflect people and the surroundings, encouraging and promoting movement around The Tide and making a work that feels like it ‘belongs’. “The experience of seeing my work as you move along and around The Tide gives visitors a kaleidoscopic and rich visual experience that will hopefully trigger feelings of wellbeing and joy.”</p> <p class="">The architecture and design of The Tide, as well as how the space is used by the public, has influenced the intricate design to allow people a fluid and ever-changing experience of the work. Selected colours and repeated visuals have been used to augment and enhance the space and visitor experience. This site-specific work aims to create a new space for exploration and discovery. It depicts and symbolises a physical and metaphorical meeting point of both colours and people. Covering all the glass panels of The Tide, this immersive installation helps join together the different paths across the space. The luminous multicoloured stripes collectively become a rhythmic cacophony of colours, creating a mesmerising mass when viewed from all angles. The work appears to change and morph as you journey around the space. The work encourages you to follow the work around the space, with different perspectives offering intriguing colourways and kaleidoscopic visuals.</p> <p class="">The colour palette aims to encourage positive associations and memories of colour. West makes these colour choices instinctively and intuitively, experimenting in colour mixing to focus on the interaction of colours as well as carefully composing a spatial balance between geometric elements and forms.</p>
