A new sculpture has popped up in east London as part of Frieze Projects East. This bright, sweety-esque sculpture is by Garry Webb and is permanent, unlike many of these sculptures that we get excited about just in time for them to disappear.
The sculpture is called Squeaky Clean and perfectly fits its surroundings and it’s purpose. If you want to get a big hit of nostalgia then get down there and check it out. There will be a number of other things added to the area like this as part of the Frieze Projects East that sees east London become a hub of artistic activity (not that it isn’t already – but even more-so).
Works in this project are curated and produced by the Frieze Art Foundation and commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and CREATE.
There will be six sites each with a new piece of artwork especially commissioned for the Olympic boroughs.
Other sculptures include ‘Love’ an installation by Anthea Hamilton and Nicholas Byrne in Poplar Baths, Tower Hamlets and ‘Sandfountain’ by Klaus Weber a fountain the spurts sand not water at 5 Sugar House Lane, Newham, London, E15 2QS.
