LONDON.- The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, through its event producer, DREAM has commissioned three major new contemporary art works for Exhibition ROAD SHOW. The commissions will populate the road for nine days, alongside the live music acts, pop-up ballrooms, dance and circus extravaganzas, large-scale vintage board games, glamorous fashion outings and Eat St food stalls that make up Exhibition ROAD SHOW.

From a meteorite that is over 4.5 million years old, to a living sculpture populated by bees, and a bird’s eye view commentary, examining the public from afar, each artwork investigates a unique aspect of the natural world.

Katie Paterson: ‘Campo del Cielo, Field of the Sky’
Katie Paterson’s work offers a unique blend of art and science, and an expanded sense of reality, beyond the purely visible. For Road Show, Paterson has taken a meteorite that has been travelling through space and time for 4.5 billion years, cast it, melted it and then re-cast it back into “a new version of itself.” The new space and time altered meteorite will be placed on Exhibition Road where people will be encouraged to explore the cosmic rock. The iron meteorite was found in the Formosa province of Argentina, in the Campo del Cielo strewn field, and was buried twelve feet below the earth for 5,600 years.

Graeme Miller: ‘On Air’
Graeme Miller’s work embraces a wide range of media reflecting a sense of landscape and place. For Road Show Miller will create a continuous commentary on the everyday life of Exhibition Road and its surrounds throughout the nine days. On the rooftops high above the Road, he will set up a temporary radio station and invite broadcasters from the worlds of sport and the arts to commentate on the passing action. They will narrate the constant flow of activity visible from their elevated position, from the passers-by below to clouds over the North Downs, to planes landing at Heathrow. An evocation of the constantly changing layers of London life, the audio commentary will be made available to passers by via a low frequency FM broadcast on bespoke in-ear radios.

Tomàš Libertiny: ‘The Agreement’
Slovakian artist Tomàš Libertiny creates live sculptures inhabited by swarms of honeybees. For Road Show, he will be bringing a unique new ecosystem to the festival, creating a visually stunning home for the bees. Exploring the relationship between natural and man-made production systems by encouraging living bees to create hives in particular forms, Libertiny extends the bees’ natural forms, demonstrating their ability to mirror, as well as build upon, man-made structures.
