Sculpture "Scavenging Hunt" 25 June
A circular scavenging hunt starting from the sculpture show at RCA Battersea, through Battersea park via our public sculpture.
About this event
In 1963 Battersea Park hosted an exhibition called 'Sculpture in the Open Air'. Fascinating artworks were placed throughout the park, including Barbara Hepworth’s contribution ‘Single Form’, which found a permanent home on the south shore of the lake. This summer ‘Single Form’ has been temporarily relocated to the Rijksmuseum Open Gardens in Amsterdam for a retrospective of Hepworth’s work. In its place, students from the Royal College of Art’s Sculpture course were invited by Wandsworth Council to display a series of installations. My group’s contribution, 'The Locuscope', invites park visitors to look at their surroundings differently, encouraging a closer consideration of things which we otherwise may have overlooked. Influenced by this approach to looking and the work I am exhibiting in RCA 2022, I would like to invite you on a circular scavenging hunt starting from the sculpture show at RCA Battersea, through Battersea park via our installation. Along the way, we will gather debris from which we will construct miniature sculptures upon our return.
