This is pretty impressive, and we can’t wait to scuttle along to a tube station near us to see it! Mark Wallinger is in the process of creating the Art on the Underground’s 150th anniversary celebration art project; Labyrinth.
Wallinger is creating 270 individual pieces, each one to be permanently displayed in each of the underground’s stations. Last week the first of the initial ten works was unveiled at St James’s Park station, with others including Baker Street, King’s Cross St Pancras, Oxford Circus, Westminster and Victoria also now on display. The remaining 260 works will gradually be installed across the entire network over the coming months and will all be in place by this summer.
What an amazing project to work on… (oops – did you spot the accidental gag there?… amazeing!?….. groan!).
