Acclaimed New York-based artist Sarah Sze will transform a disused Victorian waiting room at Peckham Rye train station in south London with a new site-specific sculptural installation. Co-commissioned by Artangel, Sze’s new work takes over a large, vaulted space above the main ticket office that has been boarded up for fifty years. The exhibition in London is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and The Arch Company.
Sze’s work conveys the velocity and volatility of life in the fragile age of the smartphone. Animated by fragments of objects and moving images like a vast magic lantern, this new immersive sculpture will transform the large, vaulted space that has been boarded up for fifty years.
