A sculpture has been unveiled as part of London’s first contemporary art walk.
The Line, which runs from North Greenwich to Stratford between the O2 and Olympic Park, is a public exhibition space designed to make visitors engage with modern art.
The latest sculpture in The Line, Porte de Couleur, joins existing pieces from Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Antony Gormley. It’s situated in Stratford, at the entrance to the International Quarter London.
The sculpture was commissioned by Lendlease, curated by Artwise and created by Lother Götz, who was born in Germany but has lived in Newham for the last 25 years. The work is made of glass triangles and an intersecting line, creating open walls and a roof.
Mr Götz said: “I want the artwork to be playful, interactive and, above all, welcoming. The special view from above that the residents will enjoy is also an important aspect for me - my aim is to make this aerial view like an abstract drawing to look at and enjoy from above.”
