Monday 11th June: Bold Tendencies 2018

I'm so glad that Simon Whybray's pink painted installation is still intact and refreshed on the stairwell up the levels of Peckham's multi-story carpark to Bold Tendencies.  The outdoor and scenic sculpture show gets even more colourful with this year's major piece "Cloudburst" by Irina Kirchuk.  A rainbow of reconfigured, reappropriated refuse on the roof represents the fabric of London’s skyline using waste from the local SE15 area.  Her site-specific concept has answered the theme for 2018's art commissions focusing on ecology.   I love the combination of something that is visually stunning to draw your attention and then follows up with an urgent message such as this.  Not only that, but is brightening up the current grey-sky Summer we are experiencing in the city, so just for that reason it's already winning.

(The other Polyhedra structure here is a tent that houses a film projection piece "Mirror Matter" by Emilija Skarnulyte, and neon sculpture by Arjuna Neuman
