Sculpture Project 6
Sat 30 Jun '12 - Sun 30 Sep '12
Levels 7 - 10
London SE15 4ST
Overlooking the Bussey Building, where Victorian industrialist George Bussey once made a killing by manufacturing everything from roller-skates to cricket bats, the upper levels of this disused Peckham car-park have been swept and filled with Art.
The latter has landed from another planet. It does not appear at one with the post-industrial or industrial landscape despite the site-specific, specially-commissioned nature of the sculptures on display. While the trains from nearby Peckham Rye station roar beneath, their tracks reclaimed by weeds and rubbish, these six international artistsí work is at odds with its environment. But perhaps therein lies its strength. The experience of winding up endless grey stairs to the seventh floor, where dreariness is suddenly exchanged for artist Mary Redmondís voodoo forest of bamboo spines, some of which swing like wind-chimes but spookily fail to make a noise, is quite extraordinary.
Sculpture Project 6 opens on June 30th and runs until 30th September. Open from 12 noon until 10pm Thursday to Sunday.
