Empty Lot

 

I am really inspired by the current Turbine hall installation ‘Empty Lot’ at Tate Modern by Abraham Cruzvillegas . I was born in South London and my childhood and much of my adult life can be mapped through the areas of London I lived, worked and played in. The soil really is full of memories…

“Empty Lot is a large geometric sculpture created using scaffolding, a grid of triangular wooden planters, and soil collected from parks across London including Peckham, Haringey and Westminster. Nothing will be planted in the soil, but it will be lit by lamps and watered throughout the six month display. The unpredictable nature of the work, which may grow and change from one week to the next, provokes questions about the city and nature, as well as wider ideas of chance, change, and hope.”  Text from Tate Website:
