Sat17th March: Fenando Casasempere at Somerset House

Exactly a month since London Fashion Week, the courtyard of Somerset House has cleared out the tent and made way for an installation by Fernando Casasempere. The London based, Chliean artist is celebrating a feeling we all experiencing at the moment in the switching seasons. The vast green meadow of turf with 10,000 ceramic flowers marks the relief of Winter's end and the excitement of Spring's blooms appearing. Its clear to see Casasempere's interest in ecology and geology in this latest work "Out of Sync" , created from clay sourced as a by-product from industrial process. The piece commissioned by Somerset House is free entry so you can enjoy the spectacle as easily as the daffodils in London's parks.................
Thanks to Craig Lawrence who invited me to the private view where we enjoyed a glass of bubbly with a pansy bloom in!
