Artist in residence at Tower Bridge
Fluid Statics: A new exhibition inside Tower Bridge
We're delighted to launch an exciting new exhibition by Tower Bridge Artist in Residence and multidisciplinary research driven artist, Imogen Piper.
Following three months of exploration, interpretation and experimentation, Imogen’s residency culminates in this exciting new exhibition, which will centre on a large-scale sculpture fashioned from the pipes, containers and tubes that mimic the numerous fluidic systems at the heart of the Bridge.
The new work will be on display in the Victorian Engine Rooms and is included in the standard price of admission.
Update: 27 September 2018
Two months into her residency, artist Imogen Piper is fully immersed in the task of discovering and artistically interpreting the data of Tower Bridge.
Imogen has been delving into the Bridge's records, including those held at the London Metropolitan Archives. She has also been working with our expert Exhibition and Technical staff to gain a deep understanding of the Bridge, its data and the people who make it work.
Behind the scenes, her studio is an energetic space, full of drawings, diagrams, models and ideas. Taking a sculptural form, Imogen’s artwork will explore the relationship between the Bridge’s physical structure, its purpose and its mechanics, providing a new and creative perspective on London’s Defining Landmark. Visitors will be able to see the outcome of this thoughtful, playful and experimental residency when they visit Imogen's exhibition inside Tower Bridge's Victorian Engine Rooms from November 2018 to January 2019.
