The newly restored Pitzhanger Gallery has marked its place as a major cultural venue. With the second exhibition featuring a 18-metre-wide sculpture by Es Devlin.
“Interdisciplinary artist Es Devlin OBE is known for her ambitious sculptures and environments across art, theatre and music.
In this new large-scale work, commissioned by Pitzhanger, visitors will be immersed within a vast chronological landscape mapping pivotal shifts in human perspective, from the southern African caves in which humans made their first drawings, to the study in Switzerland where the world wide web was conceived.
The 18-metre-wide sculpture will physically fill the entire gallery space, with mirrored planes multiplying its dimensions to enable a reimagining of time and space.”
