Thames Tideway, The New Super Sewer for London

Public Art Integrated Commission 2017-19, Cremorne Wharf Depot, Chelsea, London

Current Project

To develop a new integrated site specific for the site at Cremone Wharf/Chelsea Wharf and Lots road pumping station. The new artwork will reflect the heritage of the site.

Referencing the heritage of Cremone Gardens, whilst also associated with freedom of movement. Cremone gardens was very popular for hot air balloon ascents and races that took place here in the 19 century, the new gate takes inspiration from Victorian hot air balloons, with their intricate rope and netting structures, creating linear drawings that are overlaid to suggest balloon races.
