Each year, Sculpture in the City returns to the Square Mile with contemporary works from internationally renowned artists. Jonathan Trayte‘s The Spectacle will be an ambitious site-specific installation comprising of seating, lighting and sculpture. Situated in a busy thoroughfare for pedestrians, these striking visual devices will perform collectively as a meeting place, or somewhere to pause. Highly stylized colours and motifs will be borrowed from the language of foodstuffs and confectionary. Glossy, synthetic ‘skins’ of paint will give the work a colourful pop status, a chameleon appearance and an almost edible quality.The work will be a coming together of natural forms and saccharine colours, generating a dynamic physical presence in the urban landscape.
