Fen Court Features Botanic Masterpiece as part of Sculpture in the City
Sculpture in the City is an annual public art programme that showcases the work of both established global artists and rising talent, amidst iconic architecture across the City of London. Celebrating its ninth edition, this open-air exhibition enhances the experience for city workers as well as tourists alike.
Last year Sysco collaborated with Generali Real Estate to transform the public highway of their first London development into an experiential artistic encounter for visitors travelling through the passage between Fenchurch Street and Fenchurch Avenue. Residing in the centre of this public highway, Sysco integrated a 180m2 ceiling mounted LED screen that would present an artistic video piece by artists Claire Oboussier and Vong Phaophanit titled 'The Call of Things' depicting London's great parks and waterscapes.
An ideal canvas for presenting large scale compositions, Fen Court hosted the work of Jennifer Steinkamp as part of the Sculpture in the City exhibition, featuring her masterpiece titled Botanic. Inspired by the garden plans for the Stanford Wildflower Seeding Project and the garden at the Stanford Hospital, the flowers have been animated with a cubic framework that utilises the outer edges of the video wall. Floated by an unseen force, the flowers move across the screen colliding with each other and the parameters of the frame, looping forwards, backwards, breaking apart and coming back together again.
