Fragmented Follies is a new outdoor commission by Sam Jacob Studio. The sculptural installation draws upon the layered architectural and cultural histories of Battersea Park and its neighbourhood, combining site-specific elements which reference the park’s past, such as its Victorian ironwork and the structures left behind from the 1951 Festival of Britain. Presented on Wandsworth Council’s Pump House Gallery terrace and accompanied by a family-friendly activity, these contemporary assemblages will act as ‘urban’ furniture inviting viewers to consider the way they occupy the constructed space of the park, against the backdrop of Battersea’s shifting physical, social and economic environment.
This project is one of the Royal College of Art Curating Contemporary Art Shows 2019. MA Curating Contemporary Art (CCA) graduating students will present four final projects in collaboration with leading UK based art organisations including Gasworks, Nottingham Contemporary, The Photographers’ Gallery and Pump House Gallery.
