2014 – 2015
Project cost: £24,000
BSCF Contribution: £3,000
VITRINE gallery and Bermondsey Square launched a public sculpture commission in Bermondsey Square. Following the success of VITRINE’s two Bermondsey spaces, Sculpture at Bermondsey Square (SABS) will further VITRINE’s contribution to the rapid artistic growth of Bermondsey by creating a valuable opportunity for artists to make significant new work for a public space.
VITRINE will commission three artists to consecutively produce new work for Sculpture at Bermondsey Square. Each will be exhibited in the square for a six month period. The first commission launched in October 2014 features new work by the sculptor Karen Tang inspired by a 1950s sci-fi monster movie shot in Bermondsey.
