Fabrication and installation of bronze cabbage fountain centrepiece, for The Garden; a commission of Anthea Hamilton by Studio Voltaire.
Hamilton is an on-site studio artist at Studio Voltaire and resident of the local area of South London. The artist was commissioned by Studio Voltaire to design a new courtyard garden forming the public entrance of our building, which opened in October 2021. Nominated for the Turner Prize in 2016, Hamilton was inspired by the vernacular gardens of South London. Hamilton moves between reference points which include walled kitchen gardens, the rich colours and bold geometry of 70s design, and organic surfaces such as charred oak, which nod to the architecture and materials of Studio Voltaire’s 19th Century gallery.
