|Spreading the tentacles of public art: Octopus by Marialuisa Tadei comes to Thomas More Square|
Octopus by Marialuisa Tadei at Thomas More Square.
LONDON.- Renowned international artist, Marialuisa Tadei, is now exhibiting her landmark installation Octopus at Thomas More Square, St Katherines Dock.
Octopus featured in Art London this year and was chosen as pick of the week in Country Life Magazine, following a very favourable reception from art critics. The work seeks to bridge the gap between the material and spiritual worlds in response to the extreme consumerism of the modern world. The installation is created entirely of hand-cut coloured-glass tiles, laid as a mosaic over a concrete and steel frame.
Marialuisa is a rising star in the art world having participated in 2009 Venice Biennale and again in 2011. Marialuisa has exhibited alongside some of the worlds most-celebrated sculptors including Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley and Mark Quinn. She is perhaps best known for her Oculus Dei series, which was hailed as ethically pure and sublimely abstract by the noted critic Donald Kuspit.
Octopus is the first of two installations by Maria Luisa Tadei on the Land securities site on public display in London. The scheme is the product of a unique partnership between Land Securities and Hay Hill Gallery, of Cork St.
Andrew Sell, Asset Manager Director at Land Securities, commented: We are delighted to welcome Octopus to Thomas More Square Marialuisa Tadei is one of the most exciting young sculptors now working on the world stage and it is a great coup to have such a significant installation on show at Thomas More Square.
Public art is a key element that helps elevate the space around us into a place with a real identity of its own. Land Securities has long been committed to introducing public art at our properties most notably in the case of Gavin Turks landmark creation Nail at One New Change and we are very excited to be working with the Hay Hill Gallery on a programme of new exhibitions and installations at our developments across London.
